In 1855 the following circular was sent to the known members of the 
Jewett family: 

Wishing to perfect and perpetuate the historical genealogy of the 
ancient Jewett Family, which emigrated from England, settled in Rowley, 
Essex County, Mafs., A. D. 1638-9, and, through the blefsing of God, has 
multiplied until its members are numbered among the citizens of every State, 
and are found successfully engaged in all the profefsions, and in every in- 
dustrial pursuit : We, the undersigned, give notice of a meeting of those who 
bear that name, and of all who are descendants of that family, to be held at 
Rowley, on the 14th day of June, A. D. 1855. 

The object of the meeting will be to give an opportunity for mutual 
conference, and joyful greetings, for renewing and strengthening the bands 
of common brotherhood, and, in particular, to adopt measures for obtaining 
such historic facts as will perfect the genealogy of the Jewett Family and 
perpetuate those facts by pubhcation in a well printed and neatly bound 
volume. The attendance of all the descendants of the Jewett Family is 
therefore respectfully solicited, and all who receive this Circular are re- 
quested to extend the notice and the invitation to such members and rela- 
tives of the family as may be known to them. They are also requested to

THE OLD HOMESTEAD, By William Jewett Pabodie 

Tune, " Bonny Doon " 

As pilgrims to some sacred shrine. 

As wanderers to their father's home, 
To this, the cradle of our race. 

With glad yet reverent hearts we come. 

Two hundred years have nearly passed, 

Since first this ancient roof -tree rose, 
A shelter, in the wilderness. 

From howling winds and savages foes. 

'Twas here our fathers lived and died — 

Up from this hearth, in sweet accord. 
At morn arose the voice of prayer. 

At evening, anthems to the Lord. 

Beneath these elms, their labor done. 

They gathered oft, a cheerful throng, 
And whiled the twilight hours away, 

While peeped the frogs their evening song. 

xii Inteoduction 

And oft, within, the humming of the wheel 
Made pleasant sound in summer days, 

Heard by the traveller, as he toiled, 
Along the dim and dusty ways. 

StiU in the comer ticks the clock. 

That marked the hours of joy or woe. 

For those whose hearts to ashes turned 
More than a hundred years ago. 

And still is seen the old armchair, 
Where sat the sire, at close of day, 

And turned with awe the sacred page, 

Their guide through life's uncertain way. 

For they were aye a Godly race — 

Nor deem it idle boast to say, 
A deacon always graced the line. 

From 'Zekiel down to Joshua. 

Beneath the sod they slumber now. 

But yet one noble form survives. 
To show us all their spotless worth, 

The daily beauty of their lives. 

Oh, may their virtues still descend. 

While time's unwearied wing expands. 
That all at length again may meet. 

Meet in " a house not made with hands." 

OUR FAMILY PLEDGE, By Jedediah Jewett, of Portland, Me. 

Tune, " Aidd Lang Syne " 

We're gathered here, a fam'ly band. 

Upon Old Rowley's shore, 
Though scattered wide throughout the land. 

We're parted now no more. 

Then here's a hand, a Jewett's hand 

Which each mil pledge the other. 
That aye for God and Truth we'll stand. 

And ne'er forget a brother. 

From pine-clad East and fertile West, 

We gather here to-day ; 
May this re-union now be blest, 

And be remembered aye. 

Then here's a hand, etc. 

Inteoduction xiii 

Our Father's erst, with Pilgrim bands, 

Left all for which men live, 
That to their Sons, in other lands, 

Fair Freedom they might give. 

Then here's a hand, etc. 

Upon their shield they blazoned deep, 

The Lily, emblem fair; 
And for our crest, they bid us keep, 

The Eagle, bird of air. 

Then here's a hand, etc. 

Unsullied let us keep that name. 

As lily's bright array, 
And ever upward be our aim, 

With the bold bird of day. 

Then here's a hand, etc. 

It was expected that Dr. Charles Jewett, of Michigan, would furnish 
the original hymn, but not having received his, the one below has been sub- 
stituted therefor: 

ORIGINAL HYMN, By H. J. Peentiss 

Tune, " America " 

Up to this goodly land. The fiery column's glare 

Led by th' Almighty's hand Displayed Thy constant care, 

Our fathers came; Through night and storm; 

Trusting, O God, in Thee, By day the friendly cloud 

They crossed a stormy sea. Their onward pathway showed, 

Determined to be free, — With light their footsteps glowed 

In Thy great name. Beneath Thine arm. 

Their Vine they planted here, To God our thanks are due. 

In hope and Godly fear, Who brought them safely through 

And found repose; The waters wild: 

With none to make afraid, Then let our praise arise 

They sought its pleasant shade, To Him who rules the skies, 

Their fervent prayers were said. Who hears the feeble cries 

And heavenward rose. Of every child. 

xiv Introduction 

Oh, may their children be 
A worthy progeny 

Of noble sires ; 
Be Truth and Right their aim, 
And, in God's holy name, 
Keep pure their altar's flame, 

As vestal fires. 

Since the meeting held in Rowley several members of the family have 
attempted to compile a history and thus preserve the many valuable records 
which are fast disappearing. Among those who made notable efforts to this 
end were Dr. Joseph F. Jewett, of Granby, Conn., who died before he could 
complete the work. Dr. Frederic A. Jewett, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and 
Thomas A. Jewett, Esq., of Gardiner, Maine, who, owing to pressure of 
business, were obliged to abandon the subject. 

About fourteen years ago the Author undertook the task, and though 
the result is, perhaps, not all that could be desired, he feels, under the circum- 
stances, he has collected about all of the data obtainable at this time. 

The family of Jewett is without doubt of Norman origin, but when they 
settled in England and the origin of the name are surrounded with consider- 
able mystery. The first syllable of the name as now spelled suggests the 
question whether or not it is derived from Jew, which is a family name. The 
termination " et " or " ett " could perhaps be accounted for analogically by 
reference to such a name as Hewett, supposed to be derived from Hugh, Hew, 
etc. The name Jew or Jews does not imply that the founder of the family 
was a Hebrew, but, as Newton supposes, from his having slain Jews in Syria 
when such deeds were considered meritorious. He and Guillian suppose that 
the name Ives was originall}'^ Jeus, which became Jues, and then, by the com- 
mon change of " I " for « J," and " U " for " V," Ives. The coat-of-arms of 
this family once bore three Jews' heads couped. The arms of the family of 
Jew and its derivatives are, however, entirely different from those of our 
family, and those of all the families whose name have clearly a similar origin 
with our own. In all these names the " T " seems to be one of the radical 
letters, and the uniform presence of the letter " T " seems fatal to this sup- 
posed origin. 

Bardsley in " English Surnames," concludes that " the name Jewett 
comes from the diminutive of Juliet," and cites a number of entries from the 
Rolls of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries to establish his theory. 

The "Armorial General Precede des terms du blason." Par J. B. Riestap, 
" Deuxieme Edition, etc.," gives a French family, viz., Ivatte de Boishamon- 
Bretagne, that settled in England about 1417. The coat-of-arms of this 
family was D'azur au chevron a'arg., ace, re trois qumte feuilles du meme. 
The name of this family was changed to Juatte, Jouett, Jowitt, etc. The 

Introduction xv 

arms, however, of the families of Jeuett and Jowitt are quite different from 
ours, but appear to be of a much later date. 

The coat-of-arms of the Jewetts of London Gales was : On a cross argent, 
fve fleur-de-lis of the first. He beareth argent, on a cross of sable, five fleur- 
de-lis of the first by the nmne Le Neve. This was the court armor in the time 
of Henry IV. appertaining to Robert Le Neve, of Tiverskill, in the County of 

The arms of Ivat confirmed to Thomas Ivat, of London, June 27, 1628, 
are similar to ours, viz., Ivatt or Ivat, Argent, on a cross gules, five fleur-de- 
lis of the field {another, the tinctures reversed). Crest — Out of a mural 
coronet, an armed cubit arm holding in the gauntlet all pps. a fleur-de-lis or. 
The name of Jueta or Ivets occurs in the Liber Winton. This book con- 
tains the survey of the City of Winchester taken by order of King Henry I. 
between the years 1107 and 1128. From that time we find what is supposed 
to be the name in a great variety of forms. The older forms seem to have 
been Juatt, Juet, Juett, Ivet, Ivett, Jvat, Ivat, Juit, Juite, (there was a Sir 
Henry Juite, Baronet, living in Ireland in 1850), Juitt. The Latin forms 
are Juet, Jouitt, Jeuit, Jewitt, and Jewett. 

In a series of articles entitled " American Armorial Families," arranged 
by Mortimer Delano, Pursuivant of Arms, and published in 1896, he states: 
" In the following roll will be found those American families that have a well 
established right to court armor, by inheritance, grant, or otherwise." In 
this list is given : 

Jewett — Massachusetts. Gentlemen. 

" Descent: Maximilian & Joseph Jewett from Bradford 1638 to Rowley, 
sons of Edward Jewett, of Bradford, Yorkshire, m. 1604, d. 1615 ; descent 
from Henri de Juatt 1096-9. 

" Armorial Bearings — House of Juatt, England. 
" Arms: Argent, on a cross gules, five fleur-de-lis argent. 
" Crest : An armed arm proper holding a fleur-de-lis or. All upon the 
•wreathed helmet. 

" Mantling: Argent and gules." 

The above Henri de Juatt was a Knight of the First Crusade, 1096- 
1099. Our name frequently occurs on the records of the 13th and 14th cen- 
turies, and with greater frequency in the later records. July 5, 1486, King 
Henry VII., of England, granted to Henry Jewet certain ofllces for life, 
viz., " Forrester of Windsor Forest and Parker of Sunnyng-Hill Park with- 
in Windsor Forest," but no reason is given in the grant for these honors. 

Following down to a little later date we find in Vol. XVIII. of the " Har- 
lien Society (English) Reports " : " The arras of Jewett, of Chester, Eng- 
land — Argent, on a cross Gules, five fleur-de-lis of the first, in dexter chief a 
crescent of the second." " William Jewett, of the Cittie of Chester, alder-

" Signed Wyll'm Jewett." 

Edward Jewett, father of the Jewetts who first came to America, was 
born in 1580 and lived in Bradford, West Riding of Yorkshire, England. 
The arms borne by him and which were brought to this country by Deacon 
Maximilian and Joseph Jewett, and which they were so careful to preserve 
on the records here is thus described on old records in both France and Eng- 
land : " He beareth. Gules, on a cross argent. Five f,evr-de-lis of the first. 
Crest, an eaglets Neck between two Wings displayed argent, by the name 

This is the coat-of-arms recognized by the Viscount de Fronsac, Chan- 
cellor of the Aryan Order of St. George in 1891, in an article written by him 
and with which he gives a fine illustration and states, " these are the arms of 
the Jewetts of Maine and Texas." 

As stated above, our crest is " am eagle's Neck between two Wings.** 
The motto is " Toujours le mime." 

Much information may sometimes be afforded in genealogical research 
by the coat-of-arms. It will be seen on comparing the arms of the Jewetts 
of Chester, arms of Ivat, arms of Jewetts of London Gales, and of the 
" House of Juatt," that they are very similar to our own, and that all evi- 
dence points to the view that the Jewetts descend from the " House of Juatt, 
of England," and in the opinion of the Author from Henri de Juatt, the 
knight of the First Crusade. It is true there is a diff^erence in the crest, but 
this is not a part of a coat-of-arms. The crest is an adjunct to the coat-of- 
arms, but is often carelessly spoken of as forming part of it. It is often a 
play upon one's name, or is suggested by the name. Thus the crest of the 
Harts may be the animal of that name or a heart. 

Edward Jewett, father of Deacon Maximilian and Joseph Jewett, lived 
in Bradford, England, where he was a clothier. By clothier it is not to be 
understood that he sold clothes, but was a maker or manufacturer of cloths. 
In those days, in England, the designation clothier was used only in the sense 
of the merchant manufacturer of woolen cloth who had in his employ a larger 
or smaller number of families- engaged in the various manual employments 
connected therewith. 

Edward Jewett lived long before the days of factories. In his time the 

Introduction xvii 

making of cloth was carried on in Yorkshire in private houses, the several 
parts of the process being conducted by different members of the family 
according to their age and sex. The clothiers of Yorkshire were considered 
among the most industrious and frugal people of the kingdom. They were 
of necessity capitalists. They employed weavers, fullers, etc., and furnished 
them with material. In part they were accounted among the millionaires of 
England. Edward Jewett seems to have been a man of property, and to have 
left goodly portions to his children. The twenty families that accompanied 
Mr. Rogers to New England are described by Winthrop, " most of them of 
good estate." From the fact that the families of clothiers were trained from 
early life to knowledge of the different parts of the operation of making 
cloths, we may infer that the two sons of Edward Jewett who settled here 
were also clothiers. This is confirmed by the well-known fact as stated by 
Johnson in his " Wonder Working Providence," " that the settlers of Rowley 
were the first people that set upon making cloth in this Western World." He 
adds that many of them had been clothiers in England. 

Maximilian and Joseph Jewett did not come to this country as adventur- 
ers. They were men of respectability, " of good estate," and could probably 
have no hopes of improving their worldly condition by emigration. They were 
lovers of liberty, and men of distinct and well-marked religious views. They 
were non-conformists. They had too sturdy an independence, as well as too 
strong a sense of duty, to abandon what they held a truth even in the midst 
of the bitterest persecution. For this reason they left their homes and sought 
in the wilds of America a resting place from oppression, a spot where they 
and their children might enjoy freedom to worship God. They were men of 
thought and character. 

The period at which they emigrated to America was one of the darkest 
for the Puritans. Many ministers had been silenced or suspended. Fines and 
the pillory, mutilation and torture, were remorselessly resorted to by the 
friends of Archbishop Laud to compel conformity to the ceremonies of the 
Established Church. The ministers of Charles the First were full of hope that 
they should exterminate the pestilent heresy from the land. 

Hunted down by tyranny, refused even the liberty of flight, the Puritans 
were almost in despair. All who could leave, fled, most of them to America. 
The same year in which our fathers emigrated, eight ships preparing to sail 
for this country were by order of the Privy Council detained in the Thames. 

The persecution under Archbishop Laud seems to have fallen with pecu- 
liar weight upon the clothiers. This may have been owing to the fact that 
many of the clothiers were descendants of Dutch and French Protestants. 
Mr. Pyer in enumerating the petition for redress of grievances to Parlement 
in 1640-41 instances under the head of trade, " Divers Clothiers having been 
forced away who had set up their manufacturs abroad to the great hurt of 
the kingdom." Smith, in the history of wool, cites the rigor of Archbishop 
Laud's execution of the acts of conformity as the cause which drove many 
clothiers out of the kingdom. 

xviii Introduction 

In the year 1638 there came from England to the new world, in all, 
twenty ships and at least three thousand persons. Among them were our 
ancestors, who sailed from Hull in the ship John of London, with about 
twenty other Puritans and their families (some sixty persons in all), under 
the leadership of Ezekiel Rogers, and landed in Boston about the first of 
December, 1638, 

The Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, a learned and eloquent minister of Rowley, 
England, having been suspended for non-conformity, collected from his 
hearers and his other Yorkshire friends this little company, and with them 
came to America. It is stated that so great was the respect for Mr. Rogers 
that though he was suspended from the active duties of his office he was 
allowed to enjoy the profits of his living for two years afterwards, and per- 
mitted to name a substitute who was afterwards himself suspended for refus- 
ing to read the sentence against his predecessor. These two years we may 
suppose were employed by Mr. Rogers in gathering his future band of 
emigrants. His project seems to have excited considerable attention among 
the nobility and gentry. Pie states that he felt himself under obligations. 
for the sake of many persons of high rank, to make choice of a good location 

Some of his company were doubtless his former parishioners, but the 
Jewetts lived in Bradford, one hundred miles from Rowley. Mr. Rogers may 
have gone to Bradford for the purpose of obtaining accessions to his com- 
pany, or our ancestors may have heard of the intentions of the great minister 
and sought him out. 

Upon their arrival in Boston their first act illustrates their dignity and 
courtesy as well as their piety. John Williams states in his " History of New 
England," that " Ezekiel Rogers, son of Richard Rogers, of Weathersfield, 
in Essex, a worthy son of so worthy a father, lying at Boston with some who 
came out of Yorkshire with him, where he had been a painful preacher many 
years, being desirous to partake in the Lord's Supper with the church of 
Boston, did first impart his desire to the elders, and having given them satis- 
faction, they acquainted the church with it ; and before the sacrament, being 
called forth by the elders, he spoke to this eff'ect, viz., that he and his company 
(viz., divers families who came over with him) had of a good time, withdrawn 
themselves from the church communion of England, and that for many cor- 
ruptions which were among them. But first he desired, that he might not be 
mistaken, as if he did condemn all there ; for he did acknowledge a special 
presence of God there in three things: 1st in the soundness of doctrine in all 
fundamental truths ; 2nd in the excellency of ministerial gifts ; 3rd in the 
blessing upon the same, for the work of conversion and for the power of reli- 
gion, in all which there appeared more, &c., in England than in all the known 
world besides. Yet there are such corruptions, as, since God let them see some 
light therein, they could not, with safe conscience, join any longer with 
them. The first, is their national church ; second, their hierarchy, wholly anti- 

Introduction xix 

christian ; third, their dead service ; fourth, their receiving (nay compelling) 
all to partake of the seals; fifth, their abuse of excommunication, wherein 
they enwrap many a godly minister, by causing him to pronounce their sen- 
tences, &c., they not knowing that the fear of the excommunication lies in 
that. Hereupon they bewailed before the Lord their sinful partaking so long 
in those corruptions, and entered a covenant together, to walk together in 
all the ordinances &c." 

Winthrop also states : " A plantation was begun between Ipswich and 
Newbury. The occasion was this: Mr. Eaton and Mr. Davenport having 
determined to sit down at Quinipiack, there came over one Mr. Ezekiel Rogers, 
of Weathersfield in England, and with him some twenty godly men, and most 
of them of good estate. They laboured by all means to draw him with them 
to Quinipiack. He consulted with the elders of the bay, by their advice, he 
and his people took that place by Ipswich." 

Thus was the town of Rowley, Massachusetts, founded and settled by 
Mr. Rogers and his hardy band of Puritans^ of which Maximilian and Joseph 
Jewett were prominent members. In 1639, " Being settled in Rowley, they 
renewed their church covenant, and their call to Mr. Rogers to the office of 
pastor, according to the course of other churches." 

The town was incorporated " 1639 ; 4 day of the 7th month, ordered that 
Mr. Ezekiel Rogers' Plantation shall be called Rowley." The place was 
named in honor of Mr. Rogers, he having been the minister in Rowley, Eng- 
land, a number of years. 

The history of our family, quiet and unpretending as it has always been, 
is associated with the most stirring and impressive events of modem times^. 
Our ancestors were actors in the most important scenes of the moving pan- 
orama of human progress. To the English Puritans — ^their enemies them- 
selves being the judges — are to be attributed the strongest steps in the 
march of freedom. The great principles of civil and religious liberty were 
first fully developed and established by their efforts and sacrifices. The 
colonization of this country by such men first gave an assured resting place 
for these principles upon earth, and when viewed in all its bearings and con- 
sequences can be said to have done more for the progress of our race in the 
paths of true civilization than any and all other assignable human causes. 

All of the Jewetts of this country spring from the common ancestor with 
the exception of four families who have come from England since 1800, and 
these are undoubtedly of the same family. This work includes these families. 




1 EDWARD JEWETT, was born in Bradford, West, Riding of 
Yorkshire, England, about 1580. He married there Oct. 1, 1604 Mary Tay- 
lor, daughter of WilHam Taylor. This marriage is recorded in the Bradford 
Parish Register. He lived in Bradford, England, where he was a cloth manu- 
facturer and where he died. His will, dated Feb. 2, 1614, was proved by his 
widow July 12, 1615. This will is on file in the archbishopric of York. The 
following is a true copy. 

" In the name of God Amen, the second day of February in the year of

3 DEACON MAXIMILIAN JEWETT (Edward'), was born in 
Bradford, West Riding of Yorkshire, England; baptized there Oct. 4(th, 
1607. He with his wife Ann, and his brother Joseph sailed from Hull, Eng- 
land in 1638 in the ship John, with a colony under the leadership of Rev. 
Ezekiel Rogers. They arrived at Boston about the first of December, 1638, 
spent the winter in Salem, and in the spring of 1639 founded the town of 
Rowley, Mass. 

He was admitted freeman May 13, 1640. " Was chosen Deacon of the 
church, Dec. 13, 1639, in which place he served forty-five years and for two

passenger has been in that office or minister, the whole time except eight

In 1658 he had land granted him in Merrimac, then a part of Rowley. 
In 1673 Merrimac was incorporated as Bradford, 

We also find the following in the town records of Rowley:

the use of the town. 

Maximilian Jewett seems to have been one of the leading men of the 
town. He was representative to the General Court in 1641 ; 1642 ; 1643 ;

1664; 1665; 1672; 1673; 1674; 1675 and 1676. 

He was overseer of the will of Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, signed April 17, 
1660, and " In the year 1665, five years after the death of Rev. Ezekiel 
Rogers, his relative Ezekiel Rogers, son of the Rev. Nathaniel Rogers, of 
Ipswich, brought an action against the widow of his uncle which occasioned 
the following: The testimony of Maximilian Jewett saith that I heard our 
]\Ir. Rogers express himself very much dissatisfied with the carriage of 
Ezekiel Rogers, in particularly his familiarity with John Smith, his servent, 
the Scotchman, & that in some times going behind the meeting house, which 
bred fears & jealousies in his mind. He also objected to him because he wore 
long haire." He was a clothier and with his brother Joseph was about the 
first, if not the first, to manufacture woolen cloth in America. 

" Ann the wife of Maximillian Jewet buried November ye ninth day 
1667." (Ch. R.) He married (2d) Aug. 30, 1671, Elinor Boynton, widow 
of John Boynton. She was a Miss Pell, of Boston. " Maximylian Jewit and 
Ellinor Boynton married August the thirty day, 1671." (Ch. R.) 

" Maximelian Jewit died October ye Ninetenth day 1684." (Rowley 
Ch. R.) 

His widow married (3d) in Ipswich, Mass., June 1, 1686, Daniel Warner, 
Sr., of Ipswich, and as his widow died in Rowley, Aug. 5, 1689. 

His last will is filed in the Clerk of the Courts' office at Salem, Mass., 
among the Essex County Papers, Vol. XLII., page 46. The following is a 
true copy : 

" In the name of God, Amen. I Maxemillian Jewett of Rowley in the

Joseph Jewett, with his wife Mary, and one or two children, came to 
America with his older brother, Maximilian, in the ship John in the fall of 

1638, and settled in Rowley, Mass., in 1639. He was made freeman May 22, 

1639. He became a large land owner and one of the leading men of the town, 
was representative to the General Court in 1651, 1652, 1653, 1654, and 1660, 
and was one of the two stewards for each of these sessions.

Bixby, John Cummings, William Foster and John Peabody, six of the early 
settlers, bought of Joseph Jewett, of Rowley, 3000 acres of the Village land. 
The right to this land was sold by Zacheus Gould to Joseph Jewett for the 
benefit of such as employed him to make the purchase, for which Jewett paid 
ninety pounds. Jewett by agreement with the town received in exchange 960 
acres in the neck by Merrimack river, and 40 acres of meadow in three pieces 
in the village lands."

Joseph Jewett lived in Rowley, was made freeman July 9, 1684, and was 
Representative to the General Court for the years 1718 and 1719. He was 
active in town affairs and was a man of energy and character. He was a 
soldier in King Philip's War, serving first in Capt. Joseph Gardiner's Co. (of 
Salem), who was killed in this war, and later in Major Appleton's Co. Was in 
the list of Feb. 29, 1675-6. He was in the Narragansett Campaign and for 
his services received £2. 14s. and a grant of land. The following is an ac- 
count of the principal battle of this Campaign, in which he participated, 
(from the " New England Hist, and Gen. Reg.") : " After the disastrous 
campaign of the Autumn of 1675 in the Western part of the Colony of Mas- 
sachusetts, the hostile Indians retreated toward the south and to winter 
quarters amongst the Narragansetts. They erected a fort on an elevation of 
land (a sort of island) of four or five acres surrounded by swampy land. 
There is no monument to mark this site of one of the most brilliant victories 
in American warfare. 

" It was planned by those in authority to strike a decisive blow to the 
Indians in their winter quarters and on Dec. 9th, 1675 the Massachusetts 
forces consisting of six companies of foot under Capt's. Mosle}', Gardiner, 
Davenport, Oliver and Johnson, and a troop of horse under Capt. Prentice 
mustered on Dedham Plains under command of Major Appleton, who himself 
led the first company. They were joined by the Plymouth forces, two com- 
panies under Major William Bradford and Capt. John Gorham. The quota 
of Plymouth Colony was one hundred and twenty men. 

" To the soldiers a proclamation was made at this time on the part of 
the Massachusetts Council, ' that if they played the man, took the Fort, & 
Drove the Enemy out of Narrangansett Country, which was their great Seat, 
that they should have a gratuity in land besides their wages.' General Win- 
slow was in command and on the same afternoon they marched twenty-seven 
miles to Woodcock's Garrison, now Attleboro. In the evening of Friday, 
Dec. 10th they arrived at Seekouk where vessels of supplies were in wait- 
ing . . . Capt. Mosley and his company sailed direct from here to the 
garrison-house at Wickford. The rest of the force ' ferried over the water 
to Providence ' and probably formed a junction with the main part of the 
Plymouth Regiment at Providence on Saturday, Dec. 11th. In the evening 
of Sunday, Dec. 12, the whole body advanced ' from Mr. Carpenter's, 
crossed the Pautuxet River,' now Warwick, R. I. ; but from the unskilfulness 
of their Warwick scouts . , . their purpose of capturing Pomham and his 
people was defeated, and after a whole night spent in weary marching about, 
they arrived at Mr. Smith's garrison-house at Wickford on the 13th, and 
found their vessels from Seekouk already arrived. ... On the 14th they 
went out through the country to the westward and burned the town of the 

26 Jewett Genealogy 

Sachem ' Ahmus,' ... up to the 15th they had captured or killed, in all 
fifty persons and had prisoners in hand numbering seventy-five. 

" Friday, Dec. ITth came news of the arrival of the Connecticut regi- 
ment at Pettisquamscott. Our Army seems to have been disposing of the 
captives and preparing for the march. Forty-seven of the captives were sold 
to Capt. Davenport on Saturday, Dec. 18. 

" The General, leaving a small garrison at Wickford pushed his Army 
forward to Pittisquamscott, and about five p. m. joined the Connecticut troops 
consisting of about three hundred English and one hundred and fifty Mo- 
hegan Indians. In a severe snow-storm, the whole force, about one thousand 
men, encamped in the open field through that bitter cold night. Sunday, Dec. 
19th before daybreak, the whole force marched away towards the enemy's 
great rendezvous. 

" About one o'clock, p. m., the Army came upon the enemy at the edge 
of the swamp, in the midst of which the Indian fortress was built, the Mass- 
achusetts Regiment leading the march, and immediately opened fire upon them 
— thus at the beginning gaining the important advantage of the first fire, 
which the Indians had almost always gained from ambush, as they doubtless 
purposed now. The Indians returned the fire with an ineffectual volley, and 
then fled into the swamp closely pursued by the foremost companies, who did 
not wait for the word of command, or stand much upon the ' order of their 
going,' until they reached the fortification within which the Indians hastily 
betook themselves. This fort was on an island of some five or six acres in the 
midst of a cedar swamp, which was impassable except to the Indians by their 
accustomed paths, and was now made passable only by the severe cold of the 
previous day and night. It is probable that the Indians depended chiefly 
upon the swamp to protect them, though their defences are described as hav- 
ing been of considerable strength. A writer says of their fort ' the Indians 
had built a kind of Fort, being palisaded round, and within that a clay wall, 
as also felled down abundance of Trees to lay quite round the said Fort, but 
tliey had not quite finished the said work.' At the comers and exposed posi- 
tions, rude block-houses and flankers had been built, from which a raking fire 
could be poured upon any attacking force. . . . The fight had now raged 
for nearly three hours with dreadful carnage in proportion to the numbers 
engaged, when finally an entrance was made into the Fort and the Indians fled 
to the woods. . . . When now the fortress and all its contents were burning, 
and destruction assured, our soldiers hastily gathered their wounded and as 
many as possible of their dead, and formed their shattered column for the 
long and weary march back to Wickford. 

" Of the details of the march to Wickford very little is known, through a 
bitter cold winter's night, in a blinding snow-storm carrying two hundred 
and ten of their wounded and dead, these soldiers, who had marched from 
dawn till high noon, had engaged in a desperate life and death struggle from 
noon till sunset, now plodded sturdily back to their quarters of the day before, 
through deepening snows and over unbroken roads, they reached their quar- 

Third Generation 27 

ters at two o'clock in the morning. Their dead numbered sixty-eight and 
wounded one hundred and fifty. Eight of the dead were left in the fort, 
twelve died when they started back to Wickford, twenty-one died on the 
march, and before the next day, Monday, Dec. 20, they buried thirty-four 
in one grave and six more within two days. 

" The grave of the forty buried at Wickford was marked by a tree called 
the ' grave apple tree ' which was blowed down in 1810. The wounded were 
sent in vessels to Rhode Island. 

" The Indian force amounted to about five thousand. Of this number, 
Indian prisoners reported their loss as sevei\ hundred killed, besides the many 
wounded and captured." 

Joseph Jewett died in Rowley Oct. 29, 1735. The church record by 
Rev. Jedediah Jewett is as follows : " 1735 My Grandfather Joseph Jewett, 
in the 81st. year of his age, Oct. 29."

was well educated and very prominent in the affairs of Essex County : most 
of the wills and deeds of his townsmen from 1675 to the time of his death were 
drawn by him." (Essex Inst. Hist. Col.)

" Revolution May 9, 1689, the bloodless over throAv of Andress govern- 
ment having been affected on the 18ult. Rev. John Wise and Nehemiah 
Jewett meet with other Representatives in Boston to consult with the Council 
about public affairs of the Colony." (Gage.) 

" He was on a committee to compensate individuals who were damaged 
by prosecution to witchcraft or the heirs of such among these individuals who 
h'ad died." (Gage.) 

Was prominent in the Church, served as Elder many years, and often 
acted as advisor in matters relating to its affairs, one instance of which was 
(From " N. E. H. and G. R.") : " Divers of the Brethren of the Church at 
Salem Village being greivously offended by reason of the (in their estima- 
tion) unwarrantable actings of their Pastor Mr. Parris, in the matter of 
Witchcraft, " do therefore habitually absent themselves from Pubhc Wor- 
ship," and from Communion at the Lord's Table," notwithstanding the en- 
deavors of the Pastor and the Church to enforce their attendance thereupon. 
The grounds of their dissatisfaction are these: 

" 1 — The distracting and disturbing tumults and noises made by the 
persons under Diabolical power and delusions, preventing, sometimes their 
hearing and understanding and profiting by the word preached. 

" 2 — Their apprehensions of danger of themselves being accused as the 
Devils instruments to molest and afflict the persons complaining ; they seeing 
those whom they had reason to esteem better than themselves thus accused, 
blemished, and of lives bereaved. 

" 3 — The declared and published principle of their Pastor, and his fre- 
quent and positive preaching of the same, with respect to the dark and dismal 
mysteries of working amongst them, and their molestation from the invisible 
world ; his easy and strong faith and belief of the affirmations and accusations 
made by those they call the afflicted ; his approving and practising unwar- 
rantable methods for discovering what he was desirous to know referring to 
the bewitched or possessed persons, as bringing some to others, and by and 
from them pretending to inform himself and others who were the Devil's in- 
struments to afflict the sick and pained; and his not rendering to the world 
a fair, if true account of what he wrote on examination of the afflicted. 

" 4 — His unsafe and unaccountable oath given by him against sundry 
cf the accused and his zeal in seeking out the suspected, insomuch that one 
of the disaffected brethren (John Tarbell by name) tells him to his face that 
he has been " the great persecutor, and that had it not been for him his 
mother's nurse might have been still living, and so freed from execution. 

" 5 — His persisting in these principles and justifying his practices, 
though others, wise and learned, who were as forward as himself, are sorry 
for what they have done, and see their error therein." 

Elders of four churches were requested to decide the trouble; the 
churches selected were North Boston, Rowley, Maiden, and Weymouth ; two 
other churches in Boston were added, viz., The Old Church and the Third

" April 3, 1695.— The Council Meets at Salem Village (Church of Mai- 
den being absent on account of sickness of the wife of the Rev. Elder thereof) 
who, after an examination of the matters in difference, " unanimously de- 
clare and advise as f olloweth : " 

" I — Wee judge, That albeit in y^ Late and y® Dark Time of y® con- 
fusions wherein Satan had obtained a more than ordinary Hberty to the 
sifting of this Plantation, there were sundry unwarrantable and uncomfort- 
able steps taken by Mr. Samuel Parris y® pastor of y® Church in Salem Vil- 
lage, then under y® hurrying Distractions of amazing Afflictions, yet the 
said Mr. Parris, by y® Good Hand of God brought unto a better sense of 
things hath so fully expressed it, that a Christian charitie may and should 
receive satisfaction therewith: (Note — " In his Meditations for Peace" read 
before the whole Congregation on Sabbath day, Nov. 18, 1694, and again be- 
fore the Church and dissenting brethren Nov. 26th., in this paper the Pastor 
expresses his regrets for any errors of which he may have been guilty, ' And 
by all,' says he ' I do humbly own this day before the Lord and his people, y' 
God has been righteously spitting in my face.) 

" II — Inasmuch as diverse Christian Brethren in the Church of Salem 
Village have been offended at Mr. Parris for his conduct in the time of ye 
difficulties and calamities which have distressed them, wee now advise them 
charitably to accept the satisfaction which he hath tendered, in his Christian 
acknowledgements of the errors committed. Yea, to endeavour as far as 'tis 
possible, y® fullest reconciliation of their minds unto communion w*'^ him, in 
y® whole exercise of his ministry, and with the rest of the Church. 

" III — Considering y® extreme trials and troubles which the dissatis- 
fied brethren in y® Church of Salem Village have undergone, in the day of 
sore temtation wh^^ hath been upon them, wee cannot but advise y^ Church to 
treat them w*'^ bowels of much compassion: instead of all more critical or 
rigorous proceedings against them for the infirmities by them in such an 
heart-breaking day. And, if after a patient waiting for it, the said brethren 
cannot so far overcome y® uneasiness of their spirits, in y® remembrance of 
ye disasters that have happened, as to sit under his ministry, we advise y® 
Church, with all tenderness, to grant them a dismission unto any other So- 
ciety of the Faithful, whereunto they may desire to be dismissed. 

" IV — Mr. Parris, having as we understand, w*^ much Fidelltie and In- 
tegritie Acquitted himself in y® main course of his Ministry, since he hath 
been Pastor to y® Church In Salem Village, about his first call whereunto wee 
look upon all contestations now to be both unreasonable and unseasonable ; 
and our Lord having made him a blessing unto the souls of not a few, both 
old and young in this place, wee Advise that He be accordingly Respected, 
Honoured and Supported, with all the Regards that are due to a painful 
minister of y® Gospele. 

" V — Having observed that there is in Salem- Village a spirit full of con- 
tentions and Animoeitles, too sadly verrifying y® Blemish wh*^^ hath hereto- 
fore lian upon them ; and y* some complaints brought ags* Mr. Parris have 

Third Generation 33 

been either causeless and groundless, or unduly aggravated; wee do, in y^ 
Name and Fear of y^ Lord, solemnly warn them to consider, whether, if they 
continue to Devour One Another, it will not be bitterness in y^ Latter-End ; 
and Beware lest y^ Lord be provoked thereby utterly to deprive them of those 
w'^'' they should account their precious and pleasant things, and abandon 
them to all y^ Desolations of a People that sin away the Mercies of the 

" VI — If y^ Distempers in Salem- Village should be (w'^'^ God forbid) so 
Incurable, y' Mr. Parris, after all, find y^ he cannot, w*^"" any comfort and 
service, continue in his present station, his Removall from thence will not 
expose him unto any hard character w*'' us, nor, we hope, w*^'' y^ rest of y^ 
People of God, among whom wee live.

127 EZEKIEL JEWETT (Thomas-% Ezekie^, Maximilian% Ed- 
ward^), was born in Rowley, Mass., Jan. 12, 1692-3. He married in New- 
bury, Mass., Jan. 9, 1718, Martha Thurston, daughter of Daniel and Mary 
(Dresser) Thurston, of Newbury. She was born Nov. 27, 1699, and died in 
Boxford, Mass., Sept. 7, 1780. 

He came into possession of his father's farm in Boxford and there lived 
and raised his large family. It seems he owned lands in other places. 
From old deeds in possession of his descendants, and from the records, it 
appears that he owned several tracts in Rindge, N. H., where some of his 
children later made their homes. In the History of Winchendon, Mass., 
we find " March 16, 1754, Ezekiel Jewett enters his claim for one of the 
first settlers." He was active in settling Boxford and his name often ap- 
pears on the old records of that town, i. e., " Committee for fixing town line 
headed by Ezecal Jueat." " The town was enlarged by land being pur- 
chased by certain men, among whom was Ezekiel Jewett," etc. 

He was a soldier in the Indian and French wars. 

" Mr. Jewett died in the fall of 1775 and four years later his heirs 
sold to Deacon James Chute, of Rowley, who came into possession upon the 
widow's death. Deacon Chute was connected with the family, his wife's 
sister having married Rev. David Jewett, one of the heirs." (Blodgette. ) 
" His will dated March 31, 1775, proved -Nov. 7, 1775, mentions: himself as 
of Boxford ; wife Martha ; sons Ezekiel, Stephen, Jonathan, Rev. David ; 
daughters Martha Brown (wife of John Brown of Monson) and her chil- 
dren (unnamed); Hannah Wood's children; Hepzibah Chaplin, wife of 
John Chaplin ; Sarah Hale ; Lydia wife of Elkanan Winchester (of Brook- 
line) ; four children of eldest son Thomas, deceased — viz., Daniel ; Hannah 
Snow; Sarah Poor and Enoch; trusty friend Joseph Hale junior of Box- 
ford to be executor. His widow Martha's will mentions same children."

In connection with the above grant of land to Rev. Mr. Jewett I append 
the following letter, which not only shows one of the many perils our early 
forefathers were exposed to, but also his narrow escape from capture by 
the Indians: 

Montreal, Oct. 19, 1754. 

" Rev. Sir — The reason of my directing these lines to you is, because 
it seems most likely that they will sooner arrive to the hands of a person 
of your note than to any body else. Before I proceed, I should give you 
a short description of my captivity. That day. Sir, in August last (the 
15th) that you left my house at Contoocook, I was taken by the Indians, 
and by them carried to St. Francois, where we arrived in thirteen days, and 
after I had been with them eight weeks, they sold me to a French gentle- 
man for 300 livers, which sum must be paid before I can be free — which 
looks somewhat difl'icult to me. But I hope that I have some friends in 
Rowley that will contribute part of that sum for my relief; and I shall 
take it as a favor of you if you will move a contribution in your parish. 
There will be no difl5culty in my redemption if the money be paid, and there 
is no difliculty in coming at any time in the year. In the winter people 
pass on the ice all the way to Albany, excepting a few miles. 

" Inform the people at Contoocook, that Nelson and his wife are sold 
to a French minister near Quebeck, and his boy in this town, and his 
eldest girl is with the Indians ; their youngest child, I believe, died at St. 
Francois a month ago. Samuel Scribner, who was taken at Bakerstown 
when I was, I hear is sold to the French at Chambly, about 12 miles from 
this place ; and Robert Barber, taken at the same place, sold to a French- 
man about a mile from St. Francois. They all desire release. 

" I can write no more at present, only to ask an interest in your 
prayers, and beg leave to subscribe myself 

" Your most obedient and humble servant 


" N. B. Caution the frontiers to be on their guard. If any person 
comes or sends for me, let them repair to Col. John Lydius of Albany for 
directions." (N. E. H. and G. R.)

sign Jeremiah Cummings. 

Fifth Generation 87 

He was selectman of Hollis 1766, and became deacon of the Hollis 
Church in 1770. During the Revolution he was active in town affairs and 
served on various committees. " At a town meeting of Hollis held Nov. 7, 
1774, Deacon Stephen Jewett was appointed one of the delegates to Hills- 
borough County Congress at Amherst, which was held five months before 
the battle of Lexington. This is the first allusion to the existing pohtical 
troubles and forthcoming conflict" (in Holhs). (Hist, of HoHis.) 

" Dea. Stephen Jewett and Dea. Enoch Noyes were selected at a special 
town meeting April 3, 1775, as delegates to a second County Congress at 
Amherst, " to see what method should be taken to raise money for the Con- 
tinental Congress at Philadelphia." (Hist, of Hollis.) 

He was on the Lexington Alarm List and served in the expedition to 
Ticonderoga under Capt. Emerson, 1776. 

Extract of a letter sent by his grandson Stephen Jewett to Deacon 
Joshua Jewett, June 5, 1856: 

Speaking of Deacon Stephen Jewett he says : " Naturally he pos- 
sessed far more than ordinary amiableness of mind and disposition, and 
added to this, he was probably, carefully instructed from his childhood up 
in the way he should go. For according to history he pubhcly professed 
faith in Christ at the early age of fifteen years. At some time it was deter- 
mined by his friends or himself or all together more probably that he should 
take a college course and he was accordingly fitted to enter college, but his 
health had become so impaired that he was obliged to relinquish his studies 
and abandon the contemplated course. He had in view undoubtedly in 
obtaining a thorough education to become a preacher; this I infer from 
the character of the man in after hfe as altogether probable; but have no 
recollection of ever hearing the subject spoken of. In due time he turned 
his attention to agriculture and emigrated from Rowley to Hollis, N. H., 
and about the commencement of 1752 married widow Hannah Cummings 
who had five children and I suppose he went on to her farm upon what 
conditions I know not, and aided in the training up of those children in 
connection with five more born to him by his wife. I may be permitted 
here to digress somewhat and say something particularly of this grand- 
mother. Originally she was Hannah Farwell of Dunstable, N. H. She 

married Cummings of Hollis and they settled on the farm alluded to ; 

a new country indeed then and five children were here born to them. 

" This grandmother possessed strong mental powers of mind, was firm 
and inflexible, but a devoted, pious woman, and her precepts and example 
went far in forming the Christian character of all of her ten children, five 
by each husband. The last five by my grandfather were Stephen, Rebecca, 
Noah, Jonathan and Lois. These all lived to marry and bring up famihes 
except Lois, who died at the age of about thirty, and all became pious in 
early life. That these ten children should all become pious in the morning 
of life tells favorably of the training they received at home while under their 
parents. My grandfather was rather reserved in his general character 

88 Jewett Genealogy 

and by no means a public man. As a private Christian he greatly excelled 
and here was his grand forte. He was a Deacon in the church of which 
he and his wife were members a long series of years and vacated the office only 
at his death. My grandmother died December 10, 1793, and at about this 
time he broke up housekeeping and became a resident of my father's family, 
where he remained until his death May 23, 1803. After becoming a member 
of his son's family, they, the father and son, determined that they should 
lead alternately in morning and evening devotions of the family and this 
arrangement was strictly adhered to, both being present — variations being 
occasionally made according to existing exigencies. I left my father's resi- 
dence February , 1799, and took up my residence in my father's oldest 

brother's family, Dea. Noah Jewett, then of Cornish, Dist. of Maine. 
Early in May, 1803, my father wrote his brother, Dea. Noah, and my- 
self, then neighbors, that his father lay at the point of death, had continued 
beyond the expectations of all his friends there; was at times a great suf- 
ferer, but it was possible we might find him living if we could come on forth- 

" We received the communication and was on our way with the least pos- 
sible delay and we found our almost dearest friend alive, but he could not 
speak at the time we arrived, only with almost inaudible whispers. He had 
just passed through one of his extremely distressing spasms. God seemed 
to be his all and all. What I had particularly in view in communicating the 
circumstances in connection with the closing days of our greatly endeared 
friend was to show the strong confidence and faith he had in the religion of 
Jesus Christ. Early after our arrival, when he had sufficiently recovered to 
express his feelings, he raised his hands and exclaimed, ' I bless God for

Jewett. He was called Captain before 1764, and may have been Captain 
of the Minute-men of Sharon, but the Caleb Jewett who was captured at 
" The Cedars " also enlisted April 1, 1782, four years after the death of 
Capt. Jewett, and was, probably, his son Caleb. 

Capt. Jewett died in Sharon Jan. 18, 1778. The epitaph on his grave- 
stone is as follows: 

" Let not the dead forgotten lie 
Lest we forget that we must die."

widow of William Prince, of Montville, Conn. She died April 18, 1799, 
aged 77 years and 4 months. 

He graduated from Harvard College in 1736, and was ordained pastor 
of the Second Church in New London (now Montville), Conn. Before go- 
ing to New London he was employed as a missionary to the Mohegan Indians 
and acquired the favor of the tribe. He was their steady and constant 
friend, was their counseller and adviser in both temporal and spiritual 
matters, often preaching to them and particularly on the death of Ben 
Uncas (1769), who was the last Sachem of the Mohegans. (" Hist, of Conn. 
Indians." — Danforth.) No minister in the country stood higher among his 
own flock, or in the esteem of his brethren than Mr. Jewett. He was a man 
of dignified deportment, rigorous in discipline, but very assiduous in his call- 
ing. (" Hist, of New London, Conn." — Caulkins.) 

He was a chaplain in the Army in 1756, often afterwards in the French 
War, and the Revolution. In the church record he says of himself, " I was 
recommended to this church from the Church of Christ in Rowley, the Rev.

Mr. Jewett, Pastor," " My wife Patience, was recommended from the 
church in Salem, Mr. Fisk, Pastor." 

The tradition is, that he became engaged to Miss PhilHps while he was 
a student of theology; that he was very ill and she, being a member of the 
same family, nursed him so kindly and assiduously as to produce a life-long 
and loving attachment between them. The tradition of the origin of this 
attachment has been preserved in his Parish to account for him marrying a 
lady born with only one hand and about ten years older than himself.

Mary; son David Hibberd Jewett, and my grandchildren David, Charles,

Abel Platts, of Rowley, Mass. She was born in Lunenburg, Mass., Jan. 
15, 1741. He settled in Rindge, N. H. 

" At an early date he was proprietor of lot No. 50 in the Rowley 
Canada township, which had been chartered by the General Court of the 
Province of Massachusetts. Here previous to 1753 he reared a house and 
planted an orchard. His title to this land being lost, he subsequently pur- 
chased the same property of the Masonian grantees, or the proprietors of 
Monadnock No. 1." 

This property he later leased for a period of three years as per the 
following: " Know all men by these Presents that I Oliver Scales of

" Ezekiel Jewett was engaged in the French and Indian War and sub- 
sequently married. The home of his bride was about a mile distant from 
his own, and on the opposite shore of Pool Pond. After their return from 
the marriage ceremony, which was performed in HolUs, N. H., the journey 
from her former to her future home was made in a log canoe across the 
pond and by marked trees through the forest, where now is located the track 
of the Monadnock Railroad. Her parents presented the young wife with 
one chair and one bed ; her husband furnished a few rude utensils and five 
army blankets, and with these conveniences their married life was begun. 

" Their first babe was born in the month of April. Their store of 
maple sugar was first made, and then the sap-trough was employed for a 
cradle, in which the sleep of the infant was presumably sweet." 

" They were prospered in their primitive home, and acquired a con- 
siderable estate and many of the comforts of life. He was a man of ability 
and in character above reproach." 

It seems from the records that Ezekiel Jewett, with several others, 
were decided in their views in regard to Church matters, as will be seen from 
the following record of a town meeting held in Rindge to " decide what 
shall be done with several inhabitants of the town who refused to pay 
their share of the Minister's salery." At this meeting the following letter 
was read: 

120 Jewett Genealogy 

Rindge, January, 3, 1769. 
" To the Gentlemen Selectmen and to the Town of Rindge — 

" The reasons of our not meeting with you were these — we are (I''') 
against those that Preach for money or those that ask pay for kindling a 
Fire on God's alter. 

" 2'^ We believe that Baptism is Rightly administered by Immersion 
only of Diping y^ whole Body of the party in Water into the name of the 
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit According to Christ's In- 
structions and the practice of the Apostles, and not by Sprinkling or 
Pouring of Water or Diping some part of the Body After the Tradition 

of Men. 

" Signed : Ezekiel Jewett ; Stephen Jewett ; Jonathan Jewett, and six 


" On the back of said Reasons were writ, Malachi Chapter 1 Verse 10; 
Micah Chapter 3 Verse II " 

The town voted not to discharge them from paying any salary to the 
Rev. Mr. Seth Dean. 

April 24, 1768 — " The church then met and after fervent Prayer to 
Almighty God for Direction, a complaint was then made against Ezekiel 
Jewett, a member of s*^ church for his withdrawing himself from public 
worship & turning his Back upon y^ ordinance of y® Lords Supper which 
conduct of his was inquired into whether his withdrawing was sinful and 
unscriptural, After his Defence was made and heard y^ church tho* proper 
to adjourn s*^ meetig until Thursday y® 2^ of June Next, to hear further 
and make further inquiry into s*^ case and y® above s^ Jewett Avas then 
notified of s*^ meeting " 

On Dec. 12 of the same year is this record: "At a church meeting 
held by adjournment on the case of Ezekiel Jewett who had for a long 
time absented himself from y® word preached, and from special ordinances, 
concerning which conduct of said Jewett by a vote of y® church council 
was asked of an association." By a letter dated New Ipswich, Nov. 9, 
1769, their advice was " to treat y^ case with much Tenderness and at 
present omit church discipline. We promise by y® Grace of God, for y*' 
to Treat him with all Tenderness but this we say in honor to Christs 
Church of which we are members and in faithfulness to our souls that y® 
above s^ withdraw of s** Jewett from special ordinances is unscriptural and 
Sinful." (Hist, of Rindge-Stearns.)

361 REV. DAVID JEWETT (EzekieP-^ Thomas'', EzekieP, Maxi-

in Rowley, Mass., by Rev. James Chandler, Oct. 3, 1771, Phebe Thurston 

Sixth Generation 123 

of Rowley, daughter of Deacon Richard and Mehitable (Jewett 183) 
Thurston. She was born in Rowley Dec. 14, 1741. 

He graduated from Harvard College in 1769, was ordained Sept. 1, 
1771, and settled over the Congregational Church of Candia, N. H., in 
1771. The hard times of the Revolution coming on and the town small, they 
could not pay his salary, and he was dismissed about 1780. Jan. 2, 1782, 
he settled in Winthrop, Me., and became the first pastor of the Congrega- 
tional Church of that town. " Oct. 17, 1781, Rev. David Jewett, who had 
been pastor of a church in Candia, N. H., was invited to become their 
pastor (Winthrop). The 19th of November he signified his acceptance 
of their proposals. The same day the church and the pastor elect agreed 
to send to the following pastors and churches viz — Rev. Mess. Upham of 

; Chadwick of Scarboro ; Webster of Arundell (now Biddeford) ; Eaton 

of Harpswell; Whitney of New Castle, and Moore of Pownalborough to 
compose the installing council. Jan. 2, 1782, the installation took place, 
but who of them attended and performed on the occasion is not known. The 
result of the Council is lost. In about 14 months after the installation their 
pastor was removed by sudden death. During the following 17 years they 
remained destitute of a pastor." (Hist, of Winthrop-Thurston.) 

" Oct. 17, 1781, the town voted as an encouragement to Rev. David 
Jewett to settle with us to give him the grant of a 260 acre lot and £60 
lawful money the first year and the said salary to increase yearly as our 
interest increases until it arrives to £80 the same to be estimated at Rye at 
5s per bushel ; indian corn at 4s and beef at 3d per pound ; what money he 
shall receive towards his salary shall be in proportion to the aforesaid articles 
as herein stated. And to prevent all misunderstanding of this vote it is 
the true intent and meaning of the same that if said articles fall, the salary 
shall fall in proportion, but that his salary shall be paid in proportion to 
the above said articles not exceeding the within price. The town voted to 
raise and pay Mr. Jewett £12 lawful money, probably for his services prior 
to this settlement." 

His answer to the call of the church and people of Winthrop follows : 

" And now Gentlemen of the town of Winthrop respecting your grant 
for the support of a public Teacher, you have done honorably and well: 
and have even exceeded my most sanguine desire. I therefore most cheer- 
fully donate and refund one-twentieth of my salary during my ministry 
among you for the support of a school and to be distributed at the discretion 
of the selectmen of the town : only shall expect to be absent two Sabbaths 
in a year for the purpose of visiting my friends at a distance; should I 
occasionally be absent longer than that term shall expect to refund it out 
of my yearly salary, sickness only excepted. Wishing you the blessings of 
God, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the consolation of the Holy 
Spirit I am your affectionate and most humble servant 

" David Jewett

AEtat. 53. 

The voice of God Call'd, anon I obey'd, 

Resign'd my life, & nature's debt I paid 

My fabric now sleeps, my labours are o'er. 

My spirits landed on the boundless shore. 

Nor you friends, can death, God's messenger stay, 

But must repose too, in mouldering clay. 

Then your golden days improve, as they haste, 

Living joys flowing from Religion taste. 

Be wise, love mercy, humbly with God walk 

Then vice can't proffered fruitions mock. 

That you may sing, in Canaan's liberty, 

O death, grave, where are thy sting & Vict'ry

" The Petition of the Inhabitants of Hopkinton in this Province of New 
Hampshire, humbly sheweth. That whereas we your humble Petitioners 
have been at great cost & charge in Settling a New Township, and settling 
the Gospel and maintaining it among us. Paying the Arrears of the Province 
Tax for three years which was not paid in proper season because we had no 
Power during that time to assess & Collect it (paying said arrears in three 
years after said tax ought to have been paid besides the proper tax of 
those years, in a Time of great scarcity of money. And in building an 
house for the public worship of God, with but very little Help from the non- 
resident Proprietors & owners of land in the Town) besides the additional 
Difficulties & Dangers which many of us suffered by living in a New Town- 
ship at the outside of all the Towns in the province, in the Time of the late 
War and settling a Gospel Minister in that Time; And by what we have 
done & suffered in these Times the Land of Nonresident Proprietors and 
owners, which lies in the Town has been greatly increased in Value with very 
little if any Cost to them, and we your humble Petitioners cannot but think 
that they ought in Reason & Equity to bear part of the charges of what has 
increased the Value of their land as well as to enjoy the Benefit. We there-

, who died in Enfield, N. H., where she had been admitted to the Shaker

James Jewett settled in Exeter, N. H., in 1758, and afterwards in

He again removed, with his two nephews, to Enfield, N. H., and joined the

of the Church in 1795. He died July 17, 1804-5. 

Extracts from addresses made at the exercises commemorating the 
" Hundredth Anniversary of the Shaker Church of Enfield" held Oct. 18, 

1893. Address by Abraham Perkins. " Zadok Wright, in Sept. , 

1782, with the Brethren from New Lebanon, journeyed from Hartland to 
Enfield, N. H., when, meeting James Jewett, Sen., who was at work on a 
bridge at North Enfield, they were invited to his house, situated on Shaker 

Sixth Generation 145 

Hill, so called since that time. Here they tarried some days, and to his 
family and their neighbors they preached the testimony of the cross of 
Christ, a separation from the spirit of the world. It appears that James 
Jewett and many others were in labor, seeking for something more sound, 
substantial and protective, than was to be found in the orthodox churches 
and religious bodies known to them, and were prepared to listen to the new 
doctorine advanced by the brethren, which met the understanding of many 
and was embraced as I have been told, by as many as two hundred men, 
women and children in those early days, many of whom proved faithful 
through life. James Jewett, Sen,, was the first man in New Hampshire 
who confessed his sins ; his family united with him, all of whom, I believe, 
with one exception, honored their gospel call and were faithful to the end, 
having become to the Church efficient members." 

Address by Elder H. C. Blinn : " The wicked lookers-on of that day 
called these zealous souls by many nick-names, among which were the " New 
Lights," " Come Outers " and " Merry Dancers." Stories were circulated 
of the queer things that were done by the Shakers. Some of these were black 
stories and some were shaded to suit the company that listened. Sometimes 
they were more mirthful than malicious." 

" The Shakers now held their hour of worship at the residence of James 
Jewett. Here the faithful and unfaithful congregated and for eleven 
years the old " Shaker Hill " resounded with more singing and shouting and 
shaking than has ever been heard, since that date, throughout the whole town 
of Enfield. In those meetings, the voice of God was the voice of the people. 
It was quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. 

To attend this meeting men and women would travel for miles. In sum- 
mer it was on foot or on horseback, and in winter it was sometimes on an 
ox sled. 

" James Jewett had a singular visitor from the State of Maine. He 
was a ' New Light Baptist,' and on his way to Vermont in search of a new 
home. He called on his New Light brother Jewett, and received faith. 
This man says he was suddenly taken from his chair by some unknown power 
and spun like a top. He whirled out of the house, down to the shore of the 
Mascoma Lake, and then back to the same place again. This confirmed him 
in his faith and he became a zealous preacher of the gospel. It was an odd 
way to ordain a minister, and yet no more singular than it was to strike a 
man with blindness and throw him to the ground, in order to convert him. 

" James Jewett became a zealous advocate of the new religion and 
opened his house to all who embraced the faith, and to this day his name 
rests upon the memory without a tarnish, and the Society in Enfield speak of 
him with deep affection. To him the scripture promise was a sure inheri- 
tance. ' Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.' 

" With the father, James Jewett, came the mother and several sons and 
daughters, all of whom consecrated their lives to God and for the good of 
his people."

518 JOSEPH JEWETT ( James''% Jonathan'% Joseph", Maximilian% 

Edward^) was born in Newburyport, Mass., , 1749. He settled in 

Scarborough, Me., and married there, in 1779, Ruth McLaughlin of that 
place. She was of Scotch-Irish descent and rendered her husband most 
effective assistance. She died May 7, 1848, aged 91 years, 9 months, and 
7 days. 

Mr. Jewett removed from Scarborough to Portland, Me., and became 
a merchant of that place. In 1773 he bought a lot and house, then unfin- 
ished, of John Greewood for 500 pounds, old tenor, equivalent to 136 silver 
dollars. This was a " tavern house " on the south corner of Middle and 
Silver streets, a three-story wooden structure with brick ends. He finished 
the house and moved into it in November, 1786, where he kept a store in the 
lower eastern room and did a large business. 

He and his brother James were two of the incorporators of the Second 
Parish Church Society of Portland, Me., March 17, 1788. He died July 

15, 1796. 


1221 James, born in Scarborough, Me., Sunday, Nov. 28, 1779. He 

graduated from Harvard College in 1800 and commenced the 
practice of- law in Portland, but left it in a few years for an 
appointment in the Custom House. He died in Portland in 1824, 

1222 William, born in Scarborough, Me., Saturday, Oct. 13, 1781. 

" In 1809 William Jewett, with his uncle, James Jewett, em- 
ployed Moulton of Portland, who had a shipyard where the Gait 
Block now is, to build them a fast brig to run the English 
blockade at Guadaloupe, but the Island had surrendered before 
she arrived there. She was of 190 tons burthen ; John Curtis, 
Master and William Cammett first mate, and was called the 
Rapid. William Jewett, one of the owners, was a passenger on 
the vessel and was determined to make a good voyage at all haz- 
ards notwithstanding he had been disappointed in obtaining a 
cargo of coffee. He decided to purchase a cargo of cotton 
at Charlestown, S. C, and to seek a market in Europe. On 
arrival at Falmouth England he learned that cotton was wanted 
in Memel in Prussia at a dollar a pound. The brig joined a 
convoy of 700 sail of merchantmen at Gottenburg, all bound 
up the Baltic under a British convoy of several frigates and 
two line-of-battle ships, one of which was the Victory, Nel- 
son's flag-ship on whose deck he lost his life at the Battle of 
Trafalgar in 1805. On the arrival of the Rapid at Memel in 
November she was seized by Bonapartist officials, as the City had 
a few days before surrendered to him and a guard of 16 French 
soldiers were put on board. After several days trial on shore by 
Mr. Jewett and the Captain to have the brig released, Mr. Jewett 

Sixth Generation I55 

came on board without the Captain and was much affected at the 
loss of his vessel and cargo, which was confiscated as the vessel 
was from a British port and under a British convoy. Mr. Jew- 
ett's state of mind excited Mr. Cammett's sympathy and he pro- 
posed to him that with his permission he would retake the brig 
and run her out by the forts, to which Mr. Jewett gladly as- 
sented and the crew as gladly promised their assistance as they 
would lose their wages if the vessel remained a prize to the 
French. That day a crew of pilots came aboard to take the 
brig up to the town to avoid the ice. The cook could speak 
French and was of great assistance in the project. The Pilots 
attempted to weigh anchor but found it foul of some obstruc- 
tion, when Mr. Cammett proposed through the cook to set some 
of the lower sails which would assist them in clearing the anchor, 
to which they agreed. The time to act now arrived. The wind 
was favorable and the sails were set except the jib. When the 
vessel headed right Mr. Cammett told the men to hoist the jib, 
which the Frenchmen tried to prevent, suspecting the intentions 
and ordered the soldiers to fire on the crew but the guns would 
not go off, as the faithful cook, by Mr. Cammett's orders, had 
removed the flints, Mr. Cammett seized an axe from its hiding 
place and at one blow cut the hemp cable to the windlass and 
held the axe for future use, if necessary. The soldiers and 
pilots went over the side into their boats and with a swift breeze 
the Rapid run by the forts under fire but without receiveing a shot 
aboard. The Rapid arrived and wintered at Rega in Russia 
where her cargo was sold for a large price and she sailed for 
Boston via London, making the passage from London to Boston 
in the unprecedented time of 15 days. 

" Early in the summer of 1812 the owners of the Rapid put 
in a heavy battery of 15 guns and 100 men and dispatched her 
as a privateer and after a varied career was captured by the 
British and fitted out as a brig-of-war and entered on the list of 
the English Navy as the Nova Scotia." (Portland Centennial

Dodge, married Thomas Peabody, of Haverhill, Mass., and had George 
Peabody, the philanthropist and London banker. 

As a young man Dr. Jewett lived in Rowley, and was a soldier in the 
Revolution from that town : " Jeremiah Jewett, Rowley-1757-1836. Pri- 
vate, Captain Oliver Titcomb's Co., Col. Jacob Gerrish's Regiment of

about Boston." (" Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in War of Revolution," Vol. 
VIII.) He settled in Barnstead, N. H., and " commenced the practice of 
his profession which soon extended beyond Barnstead into Acton, Barring- 
ton and other towns. His mode of conveyance was on horse back carrying 
medicines in saddlebags. For a quarter of a century he was the only physi- 
cian in Barnstead. He received his education in the common schools and 
at Dummer Academy in Newbury and had studied medicine with Drs. Torrey 
and Spofford, of Rowley. Like many other physicians he was fond of mak- 
ing long visits, never in a hurry, delighted in conversation, slack in his 
habits and little or no determination to accumulate property. In stature 
he was 5 ft. 10 inches, thick-set, dark complexion, his hair tinged with 
gray, was quick in his gait and in his manner of speaking. He had served 
a few months in the Army of the Revolution under Gen. Washington, and 
at one time was a guard over the prisoners then quartered at Cambridge. 
His house at Barnstead was quite central ; the Selectmen often held their 
meetings in it, and from this circumstance he was approbated a taverner. 
Consequently he had a large swing-sign, painted blue; on this was the pic- 
ture of a dolphin with a spear aimed at it and under it were the words 
" Catch a dolphin." On the other side was the picture of an anchor and 
under it were the words ' Cast Anchor.' He was surgeon of the 10th Regt., 
for many years and on parade days he wore a cockade and was equipped 
with a sword. He died in Barnstead April 22, 1836.

and but a few scattered Baptists with whom he united, and largely by his 
efforts and generosity they built a Baptist church, of which he was deacon. 

" Deacon Noah Jewett was one of the founders of Cornish, Maine, 
and was chosen deacon of the first church organization ; carpenter by trade 
and in the year 1800 built the first Cornish Meeting house from a plan made 
by Dr. Cyrus Snell. Deacon Jewett was a genuine Puritan, possessing the 
strong religious zeal characteristic of his time. He was fully conscious of 
the importance of his sacred office and claimed a share of that deference 
supposed to be due to the dignitaries of the period. He had not only the 
failings, but the virtues of the Puritan believer; in person, said to be small, 
of swarthy complexion and led forward by an enormous nose, a facial 
appendage that has been duplicated by some of his descendants who are 
supposed to be proud of this inheritance from the anatomy of this pro- 
genitor." (Saco Valley Settlements.)

(2d) Elizabeth . They settled in Norwich and later removed to and 

settled in what is now known as Jewett City, Conn. 

Eleazer Jewett is described in Miss Calkin's History of Norwich, Conn., 
as " king the founder of the thriving and beautiful village of Jewett City, 
a man of sterling worth, marked business tact and as enterprising as he was 
honest. Beginning with only a small farm and a mill seat on Patchaug 
River, he hved to see a flourishing village spread round him enriched with 

Sixth Generation 169 

mills, stores, mechanical operations and farms in an improved state of 
tillage, to which the public gave the familiar name of Jewett City. He 
had first a grist mill, then a saw mill and sold out portions of his land to 
induce others to settle near him. 

" About the year 1790 he was joined by John Wilson, a clothier, from 
Massachusetts, who married his daughter, whom he encouraged to set up a 
woolen mill. We learn from Wilson's advertisement that he was ready at 
his mill to accommodate the pubHc in December 1793. 

" Eleazer Jewett was not a man of finished education, but active, per- 
severing, and of a genial, kindly temperament, happy in doing good, and 
opening paths of enterprise for the benefit of others, without laboring to 
enrich himself." 

In the village graveyard a plain slab marks the burial-place of this 
founder, bearing the following inscription :

powder, dealt it out in a dipper with his own hands to the soldiers. At the 
close of the action he found an unfortunate officer of the enemy, Avounded 
and expiring on the field; he gently placed him against a tree, but his cap, 
belt and sword, no longer useful to him, he bore away. He afterwards 
learned that the unfortunate officer was the Hessian Col. Baum, the com- 
mander of the expedition. Mrs. Eunice (Slafter) Jewett was a woman of 
superior intellect, a Christian in word and deed, of fine manners and of re-

He married Oct. 31, 1765, Dorcas Gates of Stowe, N. H., and removed to 
Rindge, N. H. 

From Stearns' " Hist, of Rindge, N. H. : " Few men, if any, have 
been more prominently connected with the town's history. For many years 
he was often engaged as master of the grammar schools, and was employed 
from time to time in all the early districts in the town." 

" He was a Selectman fourteen years, town clerk seven years. Repre- 
sentative to the Legislature in 1785, and was often chosen to serve his 
townsmen in other capacities. During the Revolution he was twice in the 
ranks, but his record is more conspicuous in his frequent attendance in 
conventions and meetings of Committees of Safety. For many years he 
was a Justice of the Peace, and probably no citizen of this town has drawn 
an equal number of legal papers." 

He served two enlistments as follows : " Pay Roll of the men that 
went to Cambridge in Capt. Nathan Hale's Co., at the time of the Lexing- 
ton Fight— April y« 19, 1775 Edward Jewett £1 17s 4d." (Stearn.)

" Hist, of Ashburnham, Mass." — Stearns. — " Col. Jewett through a 
long and active life was a controlling spirit in this town. After serving in 
the Revolution he removed to Ashburnham in 1783. He was a merchant 
and farmer, and for many years the leading business man of the place, 
but in other employments he was even more intimately identified with the 
town history. In this connection his record as a citizen, and the sterling 
qualities of his character demand more than a passing notice. At the age 
of 22 years he entered upon the scene of his future activity and immedi- 
ately the town recognized the qualities of the man. The proof of his popu- 
larity and the measure of the confidence reposed in him are witnessed by 
the records. He was a member of the board of Selectmen fifteen years, an 
assessor fifteen years, town clerk eighteen years and ten times chosen to 
preside over the annual March meeting. 

" In the midst of these accumulating honors and responsibilities he 
was a member of the Legislature seven years and was frequently chosen to 
serve on committees and render other service to the town. In military 
affairs he evinced a lively interest. He commanded a company in this town 
as early as 1789 and was commissioned a Captain of the independent com- 
pany in this town July 12, 1791, and the following year was promoted to 
Major. He was Lieutenant Colonal in 1795 and Colonel of the Regiment 
in 1796. For many years he was a Justice of the Peace."

N. Richards, one of his non-commissioned officers, speaks of him as follows: 
" Captain Joseph Jewett of Huntington's Regiment, an officer much re- 
spected and beloved, of elegant and commanding appearance and unques- 
tionable bravery, was murdered in cold blood, having surrendered his sword 
when demanded, the British officer, on receiving it, instantly plunged it 
through his body" (Vermont Chronicles). The other version of his death 
is a statement of Lieutenant Jabez Fitch, who was in Captain Jewett's Com- 
pany and was taken prisoner at the same time. He says that the Captain 
was three times wounded by bayonet stabs " after he had surrendered," but 
makes no mention of his having been run through by a British officer with 
his own sword after he had given it up. The original statement of Lieu- 
tenant Fitch is now in the possession of C. J. Bushnell of New York " (A 
Memoir of the Long Island Historical Society 1878).

He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1801 ; studied for the ministry 
with Rev. Dr. Emmons, of Franklin, and Rev. Dr. Spring, of Newburyport, 
Mass ; was ordained pastor of the Congregational Church at Rockport, Mass., 
Oct. 30, 1805, and continued in the pastorate of that Church for 31 years, 
when he resigned on account of impaired health. 

" Mr. Jewett's views of religious truths were those entertained by most 
of the New England churches of his time. He found a church of ten mem- 
bers which he increased to two hundred and fifty. He found his people, if 
not in a low state of morals, yet rapidly tending thitherward, and he arrested 
this downward progress, and improved and elevated them to such a degree 
that the success of his labors was often the theme of remarks in places beyond 
the sphere of his work. He was compelled to resign by ill health in 
1836, and died at the home of his son-in-law, in Waltham, July 14, 1841. By 
desire of the people of his parish, his remains were brought to Rockport, July 
— , 1856, and interred in the Parish Burying-ground, where a handsome 
granite monument marks the place of their repose. The occasion was one 
of deep interest. On the 13th of that month. Rev. Wm. R. Jewett, his son, 
preached a sermon at the meetinghouse, and then made an address at the grave 
which was responded to on behalf of the people by Dr. Benjamin Haskell." 
(" Hist, of Gloucester, Mass.") 

Allen, in his " American Biographies," says of him : " He was a man of 
childlike simplicity and Christian tenderness, but of an iron purpose, resolute, 
fearless and immovable."

New Brunswick, in 1761 or 1762. 

He married at Maugerville, in 1767, Mrs. Abigail Saunders and lived

Daniel Jewett fell in love with Abigail (her maiden name was Thurston) and 
asked her to be his wife; she refused him on the grounds that she was to 
marry Mr. Saunders. He replied, " Never mind Abbie, I will have you yet." 
He went to New Brunswick with their little colony and soon after they 
had settled, Mr. Saunders was drowned. After waiting a reasonable time 
Daniel Jewett again asked for her hand and this time was accepted.

" As a physician Dr. Jewett was eminently successful, and arrived at 
considerable eminence in his profession. In the treatment of a malignant 
fever, which prevailed with startling fatality throughout a large portion 
of New England in 1811 and 1812, and which was generally called ' spotted 
fever,' his success was exceeded by few, if any, physicians in this vicinity. 

" Dr. Jewett was exceedingly fond of his farm, and during the later 
years of his life, he retired from the practice of his profession, and directed 
his attention to agricultural pursuits. 

" As a citizen he was held in high esteem. Possessing a sound judgment, 
a clear and discriminating mind, his opinion Invariably commanded respect. 
In religious opinions, for many years, he was unsettled, and at times skepti- 
cal, but subsequently acknowledged a change In his views, and united with 
the Congregational Church, of which he continued a constant member until 
his death. The tract written by Dr. Burnham, 'The Infidel Reclaimed,'

" Samuel Jewett was one of the pioneers of New Hartford (now Utica),

frame house, and the first meeting-house, that were built in the town. He 
removed hither from Jaffrey, N. H., in 1795, and purchased of Stephen 
Norton a part of the Potter farm. His late residence on the line of the 
Seneca Turnpike, built before that road had been worked, but not before 
it was laid out, forms at this day, almost the only remaining landmark of 
its generation.

" Of Mr. Jewett, his contemporaries report that his word was ' like 
apples of gold on pictures of silver.' In confirmation thej relate the follow- 
ing anecdote: He once bargained with Jason Parker to furnish him the 
ensuing winter, one hundred tons of hay at five dollars per ton. The winter 
set in early and proved an unusually bleak and cheerless one. Hay was in 
great demand, and had largely risen in value. Without a murmur Mr. 
Jewett faithfully executed his contract; and as he urged his laboring cattle 
over the bare and rough corduroy which formed the only road between 
him and his purchaser he was often accosted to know the price of his hay — 
' sold ' was his response. 

" His farm was divided into city lots and is nearly covered with fine 
residences. The Utica Orphan Asylum is on three acres of the land " (Pio- 
neers of Utica — Bagg). 

He died in New Hartford, N. Y., Jan. 31, 1831. His widow died in

From " Hist, of Bethel, Maine," Lapham : " There was an itin- 
erant Baptist minister by the name of Mighill Jewett, who fre- 
quently came to this town and preached in the lower parish. He 
supported himself by such contributions as were made him from 
time to time. On one occasion, a text was given him to preach 
from by Deacon Phineas Frost, and the church was crowded, for 
he was considered an able preacher. But to the surprise of every 
one and to the disgust of many, he preached a strong Universalist 
sermon ; admitting that before that time he had been in error, and 
that the study of the text given him, with the context, had caused 
him to change his views entirely. He was never settled, but 
preached as an itinerant; had good talents and gifts, but broke 
down mentally and passed away."

A keenly active intelligence, uncompromising integrity and a genial manner

With an eminently practical turn of mind for scientific and general reading, 
he thus accumulated a fund of information, especially in the departments 
of natural history and the physical sciences, which, among his associates, 
made him an authority in these subjects. Possessed of a high sense of the 
importance of moral worth he spared no pains to inculcate in his children 
the highest ideals of manhood and good citizenship. They will ever revere 
his memory for the rich heritage they owe to his example and precept."

258 Jewett Genealogy 

ter of Robert Plaisted de Mar of Scarboro, Me. She died Aug. 26, 1863, 
aged 66 years. Gen. Jewett graduated from Bowdoin College in 1810 and 
settled on a farm in Scarboro, Me. He soon became prominent in public 
affairs and was a member of the Senate of Massachusetts before 1820, when 
Maine was still a part of that state ; was in command of the Military re- 
view of Maine in 1839, and about this time or soon after removed to Port- 
land, Me., where he died Oct. 5, 1870. 

A local newspaper of Portland gives the following description of the 
Jewett house: "Among Portland's old houses few contain so many an- 
tiquities as the Jewett mansion on Pleasant street. It was erected in 1849, 
and its bay windows are the first ever built in Portland. As one enters the 
large front room one sees a plain round mahogany centre table that was a 
part of the wedding outfit of the grandmother of the brother and sister 
who now occupy the house. It is over 112 years old. In a corner is a 
high-backed chair of mahogany, elaborately carved. Its age is not known, 
but the late Dr. Carruthers asserted that it was of ancient Scottish manu- 
facture ; the Scotch thistle being repeatedly shown in the carving. There is 
an ottoman, worked in the Kensington stitch by Miss Sarah Jewett, known 
as ' Aunt Sally.' It was exhibited in the first fair of the Maine Charitable 
Mechanics' Association, and a silver medal was awarded inscribed with 
* Award to Miss S. Jewett for her beautiful worsted work,' and it is indeed 
beautiful, the colors being still bright. It was ' Aunt Sally ' who was instru- 
mental in collecting the valuable antiquities of the house, and she took great 
pride in them. In the hall is a large and handsomely carved chair that was 
once the property of Queen Anne of England. It was brought to this 
country by an Englishman who settled on a farm in Topsham. Miss Jewett 
saw it there and gave the man $5.00 for it. He promised to bring it to 
Portland. Months went by and no chair appeared, and her friends had a 
good deal of sport over her probable loss of the five dollars. But late in 
the fall the farmer appeared with the chair and a bushel of sweet apples 
as a panacea for his tardiness. In another room is an eight-legged table 
of solid mahogany. There are no nails or glue. The parts are mortised 
together. It was once the property of Governor Winthrop and was brought 
over by him to Massachusetts in 1630. Miss Jewett's brother, Luther, once 
collector of the port here, married the sister of one Winthrop Jones, of 
Brewer. He was a direct descendant of Gov. Winthrop, and the table was 
obtained from him. It is perfectly preserved and looks as if it would last 
for three or four more centuries. One is shown a towel of fine linen that be- 
longed to the Empress Josephine. On a handsome and ancient sideboard 
are several pieces of old crockery, all of European manufacture, the ap- 
pearance betokening great age. There is an oval dish with a segment cut 
from one side large enough to fit around the neck. By a string around 
the neck the dish is held under the chin and thus the old Dutch burghers 
shaved themselves and protected their clothing from the lather. 

" The sword and silk sash worn by General Dearborn at the battle of 

Seventh Generation 259 

Bunker Hill are handsome relics. Indeed, one who knew said of the sash 
that nothing in the regalia of the Mason can compare with it in beauty. 
A handsome round snufF-box, of some light-colored wood and lined with 
tortoise shell, bears the carved inscriptions in French : ' The reverses of the 
moment passed away, a long glory is ineffaceable,' ' 25 years of conquest, 
1000 successes against one defeat,' and others, indicate that it was made in 
France directly after the Battle of Waterloo. 

" The coat of arms of the Jewett family hangs in the hall and is prob- 
ably the oldest thing in the house. It was brought to this country by 
Joseph and Maximilian Jewett, who came from Rowley, England, and settled 
Newburyport, Mass., in 1639, calling the place Rowley, the name it has 
since retained. The house they built was torn down within the past 
five years and was one of the oldest houses in the country."

1242 HON. JEDEDIAH JEWETT (James'", James^'% Jonathan'% 
Joseph^^, Maximilian^, Edward^), was bom in Portland, Me., July 21, 1807. 
He married there, Sept. 2, 1833, Elizabeth Fox, who was bom in Portland 
May 10, 1811, daughter of Charles and Eunice (McLellan) Fox. She died 
in Portland from typhoid fever Nov. 27, 1862. He died there from diph- 
theria Oct. 10, 1863. 

" Mr. Jewett was a man of marked character. Brought up as a mer- 
chant, he was ever among the most active, and in that business he continued 
in this city for many years. In 1858 he was elected Mayor of the city, 
and re-elected in 1859. During his administration of the municipal affairs, 
the splendid Government building, which was initiated during the admin- 
istration of Mayor Willis, was erected and nearly brought to a completion. 
In the erection of the edifice Mayor Jewett exerted all his powers to have 
such a building as would be an honor and credit to the city, and though 
there was much opposition to the measure he succeeded in carrying out his 
plans, and he has left a proud monument to his memory." 

" While Mayor of the city it was his constant effort to do everything 
in his power for the improvement of our city, and in all such measures 
he succeeded. His recommendations for alterations and improvements were 
presented to the City Council in so candid and terse a manner that they 
were uniformly adopted. He loved the city of his birth, and was ever dis- 
posed to do all that he could to beautify and adorn it. 

" In 1861 he was appointed, by President Lincoln, Collector of this 
port. We but speak the sentiment of the whole community when we say 
that in this office he has been exceeded by no previous incumbent for his fi- 
delity in the discharge of his duties, and amenities to those having business 
transactions at the office. His promptness of action on the occasion of 
the seizure of the Revenue Cutter Caleb Cushing, and, also, on several other 
occasions since the breaking out of the rebellion, have won for him the com- 
mendation of the Secretary of the Treasury." 

" But it was not only in an official character that Mr. Jewett dis- 
played his interest in his native city. As a member of the Board of Trade, 
a Director of the Athenaeum, a member of the Natural History Society, 
and in various other institutions with which he was connected, he was prom- 

Seventh Generation 261 

inent. All the above mentioned Associations will bear witness to his un- 
tiring devotion to their interests and to the good of our city. The Park 
Street Church, of which he has been a member ever since its formation in 
1835, and the Sabbath School connected with it, of which he was Superin- 
tendent, wiU feel his loss most severely. He was one of the most active 
and efficient members, ever ready to fill any place where he thought he could 
do good." 

" The loss of such a man is felt by the whole community. His place 
is not to be easily filled. With singleness of heart he looked to the greatest 
good of the greatest number, and with all his energies devoted himself to it." 

" The flags on the Custom House, City Hall, shipping and at the 
British Consulate were hoisted at half mast on Saturday as soon as the 
death of Mr. Jewett was known." 

" At a regular meeting of the Mercantile Library Association, held at 
its rooms on Saturday evening, a committee was chosen to prepare resolu- 
tions expressive of the feeUngs of the Association concerning the death of 
Mr. Jewett, who was one of the founders of the institution and formerly 
President. Out of respect to his memory the meeting then adjourned." 

" The Board of Trade and members of the Merchants' Exchange hold 
a meeting to-day, at 11 o'clock, to adopt such measures as they may deem 
proper in relation to the loss they have sustainied." 

" At a special meeting of the City Council Saturday evening, the fol- 
lowing preamble and resolutions were offered by Alderman S. W. Larrabee, 
and were unanimously adopted in both Boards: 

" Whereas, It has pleased God, in his infinite wisdom, to remove, by 
death, our worthy and distinguished fellow citizen, Hon. Jedediah Jewett, 
in his mature manhood, and from the weighty cares and responsibilities 
that rested upon him — therefore 

" Resolved, That in the decease of Mr. Jewett, this city has lost one of 
its most useful and devoted citizens, ever alive to its interests, untiring in 
his labors to promote and carry forward any enterprise tending to promote 
its real prosperity and true advancement; loyal and patriotic in his in- 
stincts, warm-hearted and generous in his sympathies, he was always ready 
to co-operate with any enterprise, having in view the welfare of humanity. 

" Resolved, That we tender to the afflicted family of our deceased fellow- 
citizen our warmest sympathies, and commend them to Him, who, in His 
infinite compassion, has declared that He will be Father to the fatherless. 

Resolved, That in testimony of our respect to the memory of the deceased, 
the City Council will attend his obsequies. 

Resolved, That the Mayor be requested to furnish the family of the 
deceased a copy of these Resolutions and to publish the same in the daily 
papers." — From Portland Newspaper.

famous mechanical Sawyers spoken of in many of the town histories. Deacon 
Sawyer, being a woodworker, made all the coffins used in the town for many 
years. He lived on a great stage route, and became well known for his

sister of his first wife. 

" He was a merchant in Ashburnham. In 1827 he removed to Fitch- 
burg and was interested in several manufacturing and other enterprises. 
IMany of the business ventures were unfortunate. General Jewett was of a 
buoyant, ardent temperament, of attractive personal appearance and com- 
manding presence. He was affable, kind hearted, and generous. Popularity 
was his birthright, and the record of his early life Is attractive and inspirit- 
ing. At the age of 34 years he had risen from the ranks of the Ashburnham 
Light Infantry to the rank of General of the State Militia. At every step 
m this rapid transition he had been an efficient and popular officer. He had 
been a successful merchant and had enlarged the business established by his 
father; had been employed in town affairs and exercised unusual sway and 
command among his fellow men. 

" Few men at his age and in a rural community of limited population 

306 Jewett Genealogy 

have made a more brilliant record. In mental capacity, in fitness to lead 
and ability to command among men, and aptitude in the routine transactions 
of business he resembled his father in an eminent degree. In boldness of 
conception, in power to persuade, and in originality of project he was his 
superior; but in ripeness of judgment, in prudence, and caution, he failed at 
the threshold of his father's success. Of his later life little is known. He 
removed to the South, and there accumulated a handsome property which was 
swept away by the fortunes of war during the Rebellion. He died at Mobile, 
Ala., April 26, 1871." (" Hist, of Ashburnham, Mass.," by Steams.)

London, Conn., June 17, 1772. He married, in New York in 1827, Mrs. 
Eliza McTiers, daughter of Alderman Augustine H. Lawrence of New York. 

Admiral Jewett was a man of uncommon powers of body and mind; 
and imbued with the romatic, adventurous disposition of a knight errant. 
He read law with Gov. Griswold of Lyme, Conn., and in early life went to 
Spain with a relative. The voyage made him infatuated with the sea, and 
after his return he studied navigation and received a commission, at the age 
of nineteen, in the United States Navy; soon attained the rank of Captain. 
In the French War of 1798 he commanded the ship Trumbull of 24 guns 
and sent home several prizes. He became disgusted with what he considered 
the maltreatment of the Government, and after the reduction of the American 
Navy in 1801, he enlisted in the service of the Buenos Ayrean Government 
and served until its independence was established. After this he enlisted in 
the service of Dom Pedro, Emperor of Brazil, and was the first to raise for 
him the flag of independence. He became Admiral Commander-in-chief and 
about 1827 was sent to New York by the Emperor to contract for and 
oversee the building of two ships of war for the Government of Brazil. He 

later returned to Rio Janerio, where he died July , 1842; buried there. 

His widow survived him a few months. 

When Emperor Dom Pedro II was on his visit to the United States 
he said " Admiral Jewett was one of our heroes." Some of his officers said 
" They looked upon him as the people of this country looked upon Lafayette."

" Prof. Jewett was a graduate of Brown University in 1835. His in- 
tentions on leaving college was to prepare himself for the Christian ministry, 
but having a decided taste for oriental research, he formed comprehensive 
plans for extensive travels with a view to the thorough study of Asiatic 
literature and religion, but especially those of Palestine. He was unexpect- 
edly delayed in the accomplishment of this plan by the misdirection of a let- 
ter, and that apparently slight circumstance determined his subsequent course, 
and gave complexion to all his after life. While pursuing his theolog- 
ical course at Andover, his taste for bibliographical studies pointed him out 
as the proper person to arrange the library of the Theological Seminary 
in that place. He assisted Mr. O. A. Taylor in preparing a catalogue of the 
library. It was of a highly valuable character, and the success of that 
effort led to his appointment as the librarian of Brown University. Large 
additions to that library were soon made, and Mr. Jewett went to Europe 
and was absent two years and a half, not only to select books for the 
library, but to study French, German and Italian languages and the biblio- 
graphical plans for arranging and cataloguing libraries, which had been 
carried to the greatest perfection in France and Germany, where the sub- 
ject has long been made a matter of profound scientific investigation. On 
his return, he prepared for the press a catalogue of the library of Brown 
University which was published in 1843, and it was so original and^ in- 
trinsically valuable, that it at once placed him at the head of the bibliog- 
raphers of this country. He held the position of the college librarian from 
1841 to 1848, and for the most of that period he was also Professor of 
Modern Languages and Literature. When the munificent donation of Mr. 

Seventh Generation 339 

James Smithson of England was received in this country, it was at first de- 
termined to appropriate it to the creation of a pubhc library at Washington, 
which should be worthy of the United States, and Mr. Jewett was appointed 
the librarian of that Institution. The regents of the Smithsonian fund, 
however, afterwards gave it another direction, but Mr. Jewett had the charge 
of the library long enough to establish a correspondence with all the leading 
libraries in the United States, and to collect much valuable information upon 
the subject. At his instance, a convention of the librarians was called, 
from different parts of the country, for the purpose of devising the best 
method of accomplishing the difficult task of forming, arranging, and cata- 
loguing large public hbraries. Mr. Jewett's release from his duties as li- 
brarian of the Smithsonian Institution, in consequence of the change in the 
policy pursued, was synchronous with the formation of the public library 
of Boston. The large donation of Mr. Bates of London, for the creation 
of that library, made it necessary to employ the best bibliographical skill 
to select and arrange it for the public use. Mr. Jewett was chosen for that 
important post, and he entered with great zeal upon the duties of the office. 
Upon the completion of the library building in 1858, he was appointed Sup- 
erintendent of that institution by the City Council, on the unanimous recom- 
mendation of the trustees. Mr. Jewett prepared and published two large 
volumes, containing catalogues of books in both the upper and lower halls 
of that library, which will long remain remarkable monuments of his in- 
dustry, scholarship, and executive ability. Every one, at all acquainted 
with the subject, knows the extreme difficulty of forming a catalogue of a 
large library, to which constant additions are being made, and keeping that 
catalogue full and complete, without frequently publishing supplements. 
Supplements are always inconvenient, they soon become numerous, and thus 
the business of finding any particular book becomes more and more com- 
plicated and difficult. The best bibliographers in Europe have long since 
pronounced it an impossibility to form a catalogue of a large library to which 
constant additions are made, and which shall be continuous, and thus super- 
sede the necessity of supplements. This problem Mr. Jewett solved, and it 
is, perhaps, the greatest triumph in modern bibliography. The possibility 
and practicability of making a continuous catalogue, which shall embrace 
all additions, arranged in their proper places, have been demonstrated by the 
plan which he practically inaugurated in the public library of this city 
(Boston), and which has already been adopted by several of the large li- 
braries in the United States. . . . 

" Mr. Jewett was also a devoted Christian. For several years he was 
senior warden of Christ Church in Quincy. His pastor says : * All his 
learning, wisdom and strength were devoted to his loved Saviour. He was a 
firm believer in the divinity of our Lord, and all the doctrines of grace ; ' 
and his pastor asks, ' who has forgotten the noble stand he took, almost 
unaided, against the attempt to violate the sanctity of the Sabbath, by 
opening the public library on the Lord's Day ' . . . Mr. Jewett was 

340 Jewett Genealogy 

elected a member of this Society in 1855 " (New England Hist, and Gen. 
Register. Vol. XXII). 

Another writer says : " The Poet Cicero beautifully calls the library, 
the soul of the house. Professor Jewett, with a noble ambition, has jealously 
striven to pro\'ide such a soul for this great Republic by his intelligent 
labors in connection with the Smithsonian Institute at Washington." 

He died in Braintree, Mass., Jan. 9, 1868. His widow died in Rox- 
bury, Mass., Jan. 3, 1884.

Professor Jewett felt so strong the love of the pastoral office that he left 
Amherst and was settled pastor of the Congregational Church of Nashua, 
N. H., but there he and his wife met with a terrible accident in crossing 
a railroad track and he was maimed for life. 

He devoted much time to writing and was the author of several works, 
among which were, " Baptism versus Immersion," three editions ; " Critique 
on the Greek text of the New Testament as edited by the American Bible 
Union " ; "A Translation of Notes of Wendel's edition of Farrais Life of

1870 CLARISSA CONANT {l.ucy''% Jacob''% SamueP'\ Francis=% 
EzekieP, Maximihan^, Edward^), was born in Hollis, N. H., May 1, 1814. 
She married Dec. 17, 1846, Dr. Sylvanus Bunton. 

Dr. Bunton was of the so-called Scotch-Irish stock. The emigrant, 
Robert Bunton, was one of the original settlers of Allenstown, Merrimack 
Co., N. H. In 1746, while he was working with his son on his intervale farm, 
bordering on the Merrimac River, they were both taken captive by Indians 
and carried to Canada, where they were held for quite a protracted period. 
The son, the grandfather of Dr. Bunton, was commissioned as a Captain 
early in the Revolutionary War, was at the battle of Bunker Hill in 1775, 
and was killed at the battle of White Plains in September, 1776. His son 
Andrew married Lavinia Holden, daughter of David Holden, who served as 
First Sergeant during the French and Indian War. After his return from 
the army, Mr. Holden lived at Townsend, Mass., but at the outbreak of the 
Revolution his sympathies were with the Crown, and so strong was the feel- 
ing in his neighborhood at that period against the Tories that he was obliged 
to leave his home and remove to Hollis, N. H. 

Dr. Sylvanus, the son of Andrew Bunton, was born at Allenstown, N. H., 
March 8, 1812. He acquired a common-school education in Goffstown, and, 
going to Massachusetts at the age of seventeen, learned the stone-mason's 
trade in Quincy, teaching district schools during the winter, before he him- 
self had attended any higher school. In the fall of 1833 he went to Pembroke 
Academy to fit himself for college, and, entering Dartmouth in 1836, he was 
graduated in 1840. Impaired health necessitating a change of climate in 
1841, he went to Georgetown, D. C, and was for several years teacher in 

Eighth Generation 357 

select classical schools at Georgetown, Elkridge Landing, and Queen Anne, 
Maryland. While at the latter place he began the study of medicine, attended 
lectures at the Washington University, Baltimore. Here he graduated, and, 
being elected a resident physician to their hospital, he discharged the duties 
of that position for over a year. Returning to New Hampshire, he com- 
menced practice in Manchester in 1846, which he continued until the Civil 
War, during this time holding many responsible positions of the city. While 
living in Manchester, he became connected with the State Militia, and for two 
years held a commission as Major and Surgeon of the Ninth Regiment. 
Early in the war his patriotism led him to volunteer his services to the na- 
tional cause; and being commissioned by Governor Berry as Assistant Sur- 
geon of the Second New Hampsliire Infantry, he was identified with that regi- 
ment in active service until June, 1864. When the Second was mustered out, 
he was immediately appointed Surgeon of the Seventh New Hampshire Regi- 
ment; and after serving nearly fourteen months, he was mustered out with 
the regiment, July 25, 1865. He practiced his profession in Hollis, N. H., 
for two years, then removing to Mt. Vernon, N. H., there continued in active 
practice until failing health and disability occasioned by his army service 
compelled him to retire. His wife died July 3, 1873. Through her father's 
family she was a descendant of the immigrant, Roger Conant, who was bap- 
tized in the parish church of East Budleigh, Devonshire, England, April 9, 
1592, youngest of eight children of Richard and Agnes (Clarke) Conant. 
He was married in London in November, 1618, and came to America in 1623, 
in company with John Oldham, at his own expense. He did not long remain 
at Plymouth, owing to the difference of religious belief between himself and 
the Pilgrim fathers, who were Separatists, while he was a member of and 
adherent to the Church of England. He joined Oldham and his colony at 
Nantasket, and lived on Governor's Island in Boston Harbor, which was for 
some time known as Conant's Island. During the following winter he was 
chosen by the Dorchester Company to govern their affairs at Cape Ann, and 
he proved himself a prudent ruler and skillful peacemaker. The settlers re- 
moved to Naumkeag, near Salem, in the fall of 1626. Mr. Conant was Gov- 
ernor of the colony for about three years. " Although he is not universally 
recognized as the first Governor of Massachusetts, he is fairly entitled to that 
honor, for the colony of which he was the head made the first permanent set- 
tlement in the Massachusetts Bay territory " (Hist, and Gen. of Conant 
Family). His character was distinguished by strict integrity, great moral 
courage, and an indomitable will; and he was, as well, tolerant and concilia- 
tory, and preferred the public good to his own private interests. He died at 
Beverly, Mass., in 1679. 

Dr. Bunton married (2d) Dec. 17, 1874, Sarah Jane Trevitt of Mt. 
Vernon, who died Dec. 16, 1899. He died Aug. 13, 1884. He was a man 
of sincere religious convictions and unquestioned integrity, and of humane 
and benevolent disposition ; these qualities being peculiarly marked in his 
conscientious discharge of duty during his army service.

1972 COLONEL EZEKIEL JEWETT (Stephen*", Ezekiel^'^S Eze-

N. H., Oct. 16, 1791. He married June 10, 1819, Elizabeth Amold, daugh- 
ter of Capt. William Arnold of Westmoreland, N. H. She died in Utica, 
N. Y., Nov. 2, 1863. 

" Col. Jewett fitted for college in the schools of Rindge and JafFrey, 
N. H., and upon being encouraged to pursue a collegiate course of study on 
condition that he follow the profession of his father, he promptly chose to 
abandon the plan altogether, rather than be placed under such restrictions. 
It was apparently outside his plan for life to settle down in the quiet routine 
of professional labor. The War of 1812 soon presented an opportunity for 
the exercise of his ambition and youthful energies. Having been an officer 
in the Militia, in which he participated with enthusiasm, in the spring of 1812 
he was appointed ensign in the Eleventh Infantry, then commanded by Col. 
Isaac Clark, but consolidated the following year with the Twenty-first Regi- 
ment, under the more efficient command of Col. Smith, and, soon after, of 
Col. Ripley. After an engagement of a few weeks in the recruiting service, 
he joined his regiment in July, and continued in active service until the close 
of the war, without absence from any cause of a single day. Sharing the 

Eighth Generation 367 

fortunes of his regiment, he was early inured to the hardships of a most 
severe service, which characterized the campaign that ensued. In 1814! 
he was in Scott's Brigade, and participated in the battles of Chippewa and 
Lundy's Lane, and in the siege of Fort Erie. 

" At the close of the war, the love of adventure invited him to new 
fields of exploit and danger. Espousing the cause of General Carera, the 
Chilian leader of a revolt against the oppressive dominion of Spain, he ac- 
companied him to South America, and, after a long and tedious voyage, 
landed at Buenos Ayres, where he served two months as Major of the ' Direc- 
tor's Guard ' ; and subsequently, with only three companions, he crossed the 
country to Chili, over the rudest highway, which had been built by the Abo- 
rigines previous to the advent of the Spanish. The first nine hundred miles, 
with relays of horses, was performed in eleven and one-half days ; but this 
celerity was equalled by the slow and perilous journey across the Andes. 
One who has heard the thrilling story of that exploit from the lips of the 
gallant and intrepid adventurer, has kindly written an account of the daring 
feat." When arrived at Mendoza, he was told that to cross the mountains 
at that season would be impossible ; but he was determined at least to make 
an attempt. Starting upon mules, they slowly proceeded within four miles 
of the summit, when there came a snow-storm, which continued four days. 
They were sheltered, during that time, in an ancient stone building, erected 
by the Indians many years before for that purpose. Snow fell to a depth 
of four feet, and they were obliged to continue their journey on foot. In 
the afternoon they reached the base of the summit, or within a half mile of 
the height of the elevation which was thirteen thousand feet above the level 
of the sea. About sunset they fortunately reached another building, but the 
intense cold compelled them to continue exercise within the house, to keep 
from freezing. The following day, their descent by sliding and tumbling 
through the snow was rapidly performed. About noon they arrived at a 
place where cattle were driven for pasture, and there obtained provisions 
and mules for the remainder of the journey. After an experience of many 
vicissitudes, occupying eleven days, a few hours past midnight they reached 
a village at the foot of the mountains, as much to the surprise of the inhabi- 
tants as if they had fallen from the sky. The most dangerous point was at 
the rincon or comer, where the road was cut into a mountain of conglomerate, 
four hundred feet above, and nearly perpendicular to the river. The action 
of the frost had filled the roadway, until it was in its worst state. His men 
being devout Catholics, slid off their mules, and repeated their prayers; 
again mounting, they passed over in safety. He followed, but with feelings 
more intense than those experienced on many fields of battle. Giving loose 
rein to his mule, he turned his face toward the mountain. The animal slowly 
proceeded, trembling at every cautious step, like a leaf in the wind. The 
passage occupied perhaps ten minutes, but it seemed an hour; and he has 
frequently said he was truly grateful when he was safely over. Arriving in 
Chili, Col. Jewett served with distinction in the Cavalry until the successful

close of the war, when he sailed, by way of Cape Horn, for Rio Janeiro, 
where he remained two months, but not in idleness. He soon procured guides, 
and started for the diamond mines in the interior. Proceeding about three 
hundred miles, his chief man, or guide, fell over a precipice, and was instantly 
killed, which compelled him to abandon the enterprise, but he still vividly 
remembers the beautiful and grand scenery of that tropical country. 

" In 1818 Col. Jewett returned to Rindge, and, soon after, married 
Elizabeth Arnold of Westmoreland, N. H., a lady of many attractions and 
unusual loveliness of character, who was his cheerful companion in the jour- 
ney of life for forty-four years, remaining ever constant in her sympathies, 
and an unfailing helper in the noble pursuits which have characterized his 
life of scientific labor and usefulness. Col. Jewett remained in Rindge, resid- 
ing upon the farm of his father's until 1823, when he removed to Sackett's 
Harbor, N. Y., and three years later to Fort Niagara, of which he remained 
in charge during seventeen years. While at this place he devoted much 
time to the study of the natural sciences — a field of investigation and research 
in which he has won great renown. In 1843 he removed to Lockport, N. Y., 
and devoted his undivided time to the study of geology, traveling meanwhile 
in nearly every State in the Union, in tours of collection and investigation. 
After a residence of four years in Utica, N. Y., he was appointed in 1856 
to the sole charge of the Department of Natural History, at Albany, N. Y., 
a position which he filled with great credit to himself and incalculable benefit 
to science, for nearly ten years. Soon after the death of his wife, a loss 
wliich so changed his asperations that he no longer desired to remain where 
her companionship had given zest to his favorite pursuits, he found a home 
in the family of his daughter at Utica, N. Y. Here he became interested in 
a collection of shells in the possession of his daughter, who is an intelligent 
and proficient student of the science of conchology. With him, the purpose 
once formed, the deed was certain of accomplishment. He at once made two 
journeys to the Pacific, and spent four winters upon the Gulf of Mexico, 
collecting an incredible number and variety of shells, which were a most valu- 
able acquisition to the science of conchology. By numerous exchanges with 
students in this and other countries, he has now a collection of 12,000 spe- 
cies, named, and many others known to the savants of the science. During 
these many years of scientific exploration and study, he has enjoyed a 
friendly correspondence and acquaintance with Agassiz, DeVemuell, and 
other distinguished scientists. 

" Col. Jewett is tall, and of a commanding personal appearance. His 
features are regular and attractive, and his manner dignified and courteous. 
The daring adventures of his youth attest his courage, as his varied attain- 
ments assert his ability. Unbent with years and unwearied with prolonged 
study and labor, he still pursues his favorite pursuits with all the zeal of 
youth. His enthusiasm and activity, his well-preserved physical and men- 
tal powers, are remarkable, which he ascribes to his outdoor life and busy 
interest in studies, so free from the excitement and corroding care Insep-

He later removed to Santa Barbara, Cal., where he died at the home of

2292 JOHN LIGHT JEWETT (Joseph"'% Jacob'", Joseph^'",

Mary Dillingham, daughter of Asa and Drusella B. (Noble) Dillingham. 
She was born in Martha's Vineyard Aug. 14, 1808, and died in New York 
City Aug. 1, 1883. 

At an early age Mr. Jewett entered a printing office in his native town ; 
a few years afterwards, and while yet a youth, he removed to Boston, and 
worked at his trade as compositor, pressman, and proof-reader. It was here 
that he commenced the study of the French language, of which he became 
a thorough student. Shortly after his marriage he removed to New York, 
where he resided uninterruptedly until his death ; occupied, most of the time, 
in proof-reading, and employing his few leisure hours in translating ar- 
ticles for Newspapers and Reviews. Mr. Jewett was a reader, at different 
periods, for the Appletons, the Harpers, the Methodist Book Concern, and 
other eminent publishing houses ; and, at the time of his decease, for Pool 
and Maclaughlin ; by all of whom he was highly appreciated, and intrusted 
with the revision of their most difficult works in the English and foreign 
languages. He was one of the founders of the American Swedenborg Print- 
ing and Publishing Society, and edited the " New Jerusalem Messenger " — 
a weekly New Church newspaper — from its commencement, in 1855, till 
1862. An earnest student of the writings of the Swedish seer, he was much 
esteemed and respected as an expounder of them by his New Church friends. 
Other editorial and literary labors of Mr. Jewett were chiefly : " Ollen- 
dorff's Method of Speaking and Writing the French Language ", a work 
which became extensively known, and passed through several editions ; 
" Jewett's Spiers French and English Dictionary ", octavo and duodecimo 
sizes ; " DeFivas French Reader " ; Translations from the French, for the 

396 Jewett Genealogy 

" Methodist Quarterly Review " ; together with translations from the German 
and Spanish. 

On the 17th of January, 1849 — the anniversary of the birthday of 
Benjamin Franklin — the event was commemorated by the New York Typo- 
graphical Society. The exercises were held in the old Coliseum building on 
Broadway, and were of unusual Interest. Among the honored guests were 
Washington Irving, William Cullen Bryant, John Inman, Francis Hall, 
Horace Greeley, Henry J. Raymond, Dr. Francis, and other eminent men of 
that day. Peter C. Baker presided. Mr. Jewett pronounced the Oration — 
" Franklin " — the most highly finished original production of his pen ; a 
model of thought and style, and worthy of high rank as a classic in American 

Mr. Jewett was a man of uncommon ability and acquirements ; an 
earnest seeker after truth, and a sincere lover of it for its own sake. To a 
subtle and powerful intellect was united a forcible and elegant diction. 
In forming his style as a writer of pure and correct English, he bestowed 
great care and attained a high standard. 

His health, always delicate, failed very perceptibly In the latter years 
of his life, and after his retirement from the editorial duties of the Messenger 
he undertook no literary labor outside of his ordinary occupation. On the 
morning of June 11, 1873, after a short illness and with comparatively little 
suffering, he passed peacefully away to the higher life. The funeral ser- 
vices took place at the New Church, in Thirty-fifth Street. The remains 
were Interred at Woodlawn Cemetery.

tion of President Jackson. The following is an extract from a letter written 
by him to his family describing that event : " The morning of that day,

big with the fate and honor of a country, was ushered in by the roaring 
of cannon, which made the building shake, the hills resound, and hearts 
quake with fear, and forcibly reminded a person who was to be made Presi- 
dent. At an early hour the crowd began to collect, composed of all sorts, 
sizes, colors, ages, sexes, occupations, and grades, such a motley crew has 
never been together, I know, since the building of the Tower of Babel. Be- 
tween ten and eleven, the procession was formed and the old General pro- 
ceeded from his boarding house on foot to the Capitol, the distance being 
about a quarter of a mile. When he arrived, he took his seat in the Senate 
Chamber, with the Supreme Judges on his right, and the Foreign ministers 
on his left. He remained there for nearly an hour, during which time the 
new Senators and Vice-President Calhoun, took their oaths of office. In the 
meantime the multitude collected in and around the Capitol, to the number 
of about ten thousand, according to the several calculations. The inaugura- 
tion took place at twelve in the east portico of the Capitol. The members 
of Congress, Foreign Ministers, etc., and all the ladies that could, assembled 
in the portico, the remainder of the crowd, on the ground in front. When 
the old General came out with the Vice President of his left, and Judge 
Marshall on his right, he was hailed with three cheers from the crowd, and 
saluted by two Companies of Artillery stationed at a little distance, and a 
band struck up " Yankee Doodle ". He then mounted a horse and rode 
to the President's house (which had been vacated a few days before by Mrs. 
Adams) and there received all who came. He and Mr. Adams, though for- 
merly friends, have not met since he came here and probably will not. It 
is said to be owing to the influence of Jackson's friends. It is a vile violation 
of all courtesy. The General's health is poor, and he looks pale and feeble. 
His shape is what Mrs. Royal would call, long, lean, lank, and lantern 
jawed, and that is all I have to say about him. 

" Many of the members of Congress are the most debauched scoundrels 
in the country. I am very glad Mr. Sprague is chosen senator for he is a 
man who is much respected here by both parties, although he is considered 
a firm Adams' man. The city is full of strangers of all sorts, from the man 
of pleasure, who comes to see the show, to the fawning cycophant, who 
modestly expects the reward of his labors from the new Administration. 
Among the number there are said to be upwards of twenty editors. They 
all waited upon the old Gen'l. the other day en masse. I believe the ap- 
pointments of the new Cabinet have given universal surprise. Eaton, Branch 
and Ingham, were very unexpected. Even DufF Green himself has not 
ventured a word in their praise, and you may well suppose by that, there 
is not much ground for it. Speaker Stevenson, I understand, has expressed 
his decided disapprobation, and the Richmond Inquirer has sniffed up its 
nose and looked sulky. There has been considerable said about Eaton's 
wife, but I can not say how true it is. It is a fact, however, that she is a 
woman of very little education, and of uncouth manners, and some of the 
first ladies in the city will not visit her and it has created a disturbance. I

believe our leading characters are becoming, many of them, as bad as those 
in Europe." 

Mr. Jewett, though many times in Washington, and at one time senator, 
never witnessed another inauguration, until he attended McKinley's, sixty- 
eight years later. At that time he went to the inauguration ball, where he 
walked about for three hours, " getting a little tired " he wrote, " but was 
all right in the morning." 

From the Bangor (Maine) Commercial: " The death on Sunday of 
Daniel Tarbox Jewett, Esq., at his home in St. Louis ended a very notable 
life and removed from the sphere of the world's activities the oldest member 
of the Penobscot county bar. Mr. Jewett, who was 99 years of age, prac- 
ticed his profession in this city 15 years ago and is remembered by Albert 
W. Paine, Esq., the Nestor of Maine's lawyers." 

The Commercial has the following sketch of his life, as related by him- 

" I was born September 14, 1807, in the town of Pittston, Me., about 
two miles from the Kennebec river. About 1790 my father bought 100 
acres of land in Pittston, covered with a growth of beech, birch and maple 
trees, and ' cleared up ' about eight acres of it and put into grass and 
pasture and tillage land before my recollection. The same farm has been 
owned by the family ever since, and is now owned by a grandson. He also 
owned what is called, in Maine, ' pine timber land ', and in the winters he cut 
and hauled pine logs to a sawmill which he owned, and sawed them in the 
spring, and shipped the boards to Boston for sale. The neighborhood was a 
prosperous farming community and we had a ' town school ' of 40 or 50 
scholars for about three months in the winter. I worked on a farm in the 
summer, as soon as I was old enough, and took care of the cattle and sheep 
in the winter and went to the schools in the winter and also in the summer, 
until too large for the mistress to teach. 

" When I was 17 years and about six months old my father allowed me 
to quit the farm and to commence the study of Latin and Greek, to fit me 
for college. My next older brother was then in college — he was five years 
older than I. I entered Waterville College, in Maine (now called Colby 
University) in September, 1826. 

" I remained there two years. It was a ' Baptist college ', and in 1828 
the head professor was chosen president of the Columbia College in Wash- 
ington, D. C, and he persuaded me to leave Waterville and go to Washing- 
ton to the college over which he was to preside. I did so, and was grad- 
uated from that college in 1830. 

" General Jackson, by invitation of the college, was on the stage when 
my class made our graduation speeches. Sixty-eight years after seeing him 
inaugurated, I witnessed the inauguration of William McKinley as President. 
I was also present at the ball, but did not dance. 

" While in college in Washington, I went by stage to Baltimore to see 
the first piece of railroad ever built in this country. This was in 1829. 

Eighth Generation 411 

The line was 12 miles long from Baltimore to Elicott Mills. We were 
hauled by horses, as there were no steam engines then. The rails were flat 
strips of iron, laid lengthwise on the timbers. The road is now a part of 
the Baltimore & Ohio. 

" After I graduated from college in 1830, I went to Virginia, and 
taught school for three j^ears, two in a private institution. I studied law 
the two years I was teaching the private school, and made them count as two 
of the years required by the laws of Maine for admission to the bar. 

" In the winter of 1833 I returned to Maine and went to the law school 
in Cambridge, Mass. I left there late that year and went to Bangor, ]Me., 
where my elder brother was practicing law. I further pursued my studies 
there until April, 1834, when I was admitted to the bar. I practiced law 
there until the end of 1850. In December, 1848, I married Miss Sarah 
Wilson of Belfast, Me. Her father was an eminent lawyer, originally from 
New Hampshire. He had been a member of Congress for one or two terms 
while Maine was a part of Massachusetts. 

" In November, 1850, my brother, the lawyer, who had crossed the 
Isthmus of Panama, in 1845, on his way to Lima, Peru, where he was ap- 
pointed by Pres. Polk as a second grade minister, said to me that if I would 
go with him he would put a small stern-wheel steamer on the Chagres river 
to carry passengers going to California, up the river about 40 miles, and 
he thought we could make a good deal of money by it. I agreed to go, and 
we shipped the machinery and materials for a boat to Aspinwall, or Colon, 
as now called, the point where the Panama Railroad was started to be built, 
and also shipped men to put up the boat and run it, cut wood for it, etc. 

" We went from New York to Chagres in a steamer that carried 
passengers on their way to California, by way of the Chagres river and the 
land passage across the Isthmus, By the time we got our boat built and en 
the river most of our men had been sick and got frightened at the climate, 
and had run away, either home or to California. We had just enough left 
to manage the boat, and we hired natives to cut wood and some to work on 
the boat. 

" My brother was taken sick in three or four months, and I had to send 
him home a very sick man, but he got well and lived until he was about 90 
years old. I stayed there over two years, coming home once in the mean- 
time. By that time the railroad had got so far up the river that our boat 
was not profitable, and I took out the machinery and sold the hull for a 
lunchhouse on the river. 

" We saved ourselves and made something, but not half enough to pay 
for the risk of life and property. I then thought I would take a look at 
California. That was in the spring of 1853. I remained in San Francisco 
for several months examining the Mexican land law, as land titles, at that 
time, were very much mixed. 

" In the fall a friend of mine there owned a large interest in a ditch 
canal, that brings water from a river to the ' gulches ' where is found small 

412 Jewett Genealogy 

lumps and particles of gold, and he wanted me to buy an interest in it, 
and go to the upper part of California, where it was, and take charge of it. 

" I did so, and went there and remained about two years, until the fall 
of 1855. I then thought the ' gulch ' was about worked out, and as my wife 
and children were in Maine, and there was no railroad across the continent, 
I came home to Bangor. 

" In coming home I took the Vanderbilt line and crossed the Isthmus 
at the Nicaragua route, where we took mules for about 25 miles, and then 
a steamer across Lake Nicaragua, and then down the river, or outlet of the 
lake, to the Carribean sea; thence by steamer to New York. This is the 
only place, in my opinion, where a canal can be built to connect the two 
oceans. A large lake on high ground would furnish water each way. The 
lake is 50 miles wide and 150 miles long, and is on the highest ground. 

" As my law business in Bangor was broken up, I concluded to come 
West and in 1856, I traveled over a considerable portion of the West, and 
concluded to move to St. Louis. 

" In the spring of 1857, I came to St. Louis and bought a lot in Stod- 
dard Addition and built a house on Morgan street, on the block between 
Ewing and Garrison avenues, and moved into it in the fall of 1857, where 
I have lived ever since. 

" In 1860 I formed a law partnership with the late Britton A. Hall, 
which lasted until the spring of 1872, since which time I have been alone in 
my law business. In the fall of 1866 I was elected a member of the House 
of Representatives in the State Legislature for 1867-1868, serving with 
Col. D. Pat Dyer, then quite a young man. In the winter of 1867 we elected 
Charles D. Drake, United States senator. 

" While I was in the Legislature we sold all the railroads of the State, 
except the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad, because they were in a very un- 
finished condition, and had not for six years or more paid any interest on 
about $30,000,000 of bonds, which the State had in 1852-1853 issued for 
their benefit. 

" The Republican party, of which I was then a member, in the fall of 
1870 was very much divided on the question of the re-election of Gov. Mc- 
Clurg, and also upon the matter of striking out of the then constitution of 
the State a provision which prohibited from voting those who had been active 
in or had been in favor of the Southern side of the Civil War. 

" At the Republican convention in November, 1870, of which I was a 
member, the contest was very hot, and after a three days controversy a 
majority of the convention re-nominated Gov. McClurg, but a large minority 
bolted and nominated Gratz Brown. The Democrats made no nominations 
that year, but voted for Brown, and he was elected, the Legislature also 
being Democratic. 

" Pres. Grant, in December, 1870, appointed Senator Charles D. Drake 
chief justice of the court of claims in Washington, and a month later Gov. 
McClurg appointed me to succeed Judge Drake in the Senate. 

Eighth Generation 413 

"Gen. Frank P. Blair had joined the Democrat party, and I served 
in the Senate until his election. Since then I have never sought office. 

" I was too old to enlist in the Civil War, though my sympathies were 
with the North. I was a member of what was known as the Home Guards, 
which was composed of men too old to enhst, but young enough to fight. 
We were under command of Capt. Clark." 

Mr. Jewett continued to live in St. Louis up to the time of his death, 
which occurred suddenly Oct. 7, 1906, at the remarkable age of 99 years 
and a few days. The accompanying photograph was taken but a few months 
before his death. His funeral was largely attended, the pall bearers, who 
were chosen by Albert Blair, attorney for the Westinghouse Co., in St. Louis, 
and a close personal friend of the family, were, Hon. Elmer B. Adams, Judge 
of the U. S. Circuit Court of St. Louis; Hon. E. 0. Stanard, Ex-Gov. of 
Missouri and ex-Congressman ; Hon. Charles P. Johnson' ex-Lieut. Gov. of

in 1831, and opened an office in Augusta, Me., in the fall of that year, and 
removed to Clinton, now Benton, Me., the spring following. He remained 
in Clinton fourteen years, during which time he built a dam across the 
Sebasticook river, for grist and saw mills. He found the latter profitable 
in manufacturing lumber from his own timber land, but his ancestral ties 
finally drew him to Augusta, where he also owned several parcels of inherited 
land, that had originally belonged to his great-grandfather, Gershom Flagg. 
one of the Plymouth proprietors. Among these lots was the present North's 
Block, the Meonian building, and the site of Hotel North, which he built in

Gas Co., from that year until 1881, when his son. Dr. James W. North, 
succeeded him ; was President of the First National and a director of the 
Granite National Banks of Augusta. He was ever prompt in encouraging 
and aiding all enterprises that appeared to be for the prosperity of the 
city, or the welfare of the community." (Hist, of Augusta, Me., North.)

2448 SAMUEL AUGUSTUS JEWETT (Samuel H/^^«, Jonathan"%

Lavinia Cooper, daughter of Freeman and Susan (Blackman) Cooper. She 
was born in Whitefield, May 15, 1840, and died in Pittston, Oct. IT, 1895. 
A lady of most estimable character. 

Mr. Jewett received his early education in the town schools of his native 
place and hved there until Oct. 15, 1851, when he went West and settled 
in Illinois and Iowa, where he remained about two years and a half. May 
5, 1853, he, with a party of men, started for California ; he drove a ten ox 
team across the plains, and arrived at Placerville Aug. 25th of that year, 

where he worked in the mines until May , 1854. He then went to 

Nevada, on a trading tour, returning to Cahfornia in October, 1854, and 
was again in the mines until April 1858, when he returned to Maine, and 
bought a farm on Beech Hill, Pittston, where he now resides. 

Mr. Jewett is a man of strong character, honest and upright in all his 
dealings, and is highly respected by all who know him. He has often held 
public office, and takes an active interest in the affairs of his town. He 
was a member of the Board of Selectmen for the years 1880, 1881, 1882- 
1891, 1892 and 1896 and has been Chairman of the Republican Town Com- 
mittee since 1891.

Jonathan^'^ Moses^^^ Jonathan*'^ Joseph", Maximihan^ Edward^), was born 
in Pittston, Me., Feb. 26, 1836. He married there, Dec. 30, 1867, Caroline 
Augusta Bradstreet, who was born in Pittston, Dec, 30, 1845, daughter of 
Charles Edward and Abigail (Smith) Bradstreet. 

As a young man Mr. Jewett was a school teacher in his native town a 
few years, which, he always said, formed the foundation of his future career, 
as it gave him a thorough understanding of human nature in its various 
phases. In September, 1861, he went to California, where he was a 
prospector for a while ; finally he bought some land on the San Joaquin 
river, where he lived several years, and at the same time acted as agent for a 
steamboat company, which conducted a line of steamers on that river with 
its terminal in San Francisco. He returned to Pittston, in 1866, and 
entered the grocery business. His health, which was never robust, failing. 

420 Jewett Genealogy 

he abandoned this in a few years, and became engaged in general speculation, 
so he could pass his time in the open air. For several years he would live in 
Maine during the summer months, and in the fall, charter a vessel, load it 
with Northern produce, and sail for Florida, where he would dispose of his 
cargo, and through the winter use the vessel in the rice trade between the 
Florida Keys and Savannah. In the spring he would load the vessel with 
Southern produce, which he would dispose of in the Northern markets dur- 
ing the summer. Subsequently he engaged in the cattle business, buying 
in Maine, and sliipping to the Brighton and Watertown, Mass., markets. 
He later formed a partnership with the late Daniel Glidden of Pittston. 
They bought a tract of forest land in Pittston, about two miles from the 
Kennebec river, where for a number of years they had a large crew of men 
employed in cutting and hewing ship-timber which they shipped down the 
Kennebec, to the ship-yards of Bath. In 1890, having cut all the timber 
on the land, he again entered the grocery business in Randolph, Me., which 
business he successfully conducted until his death from neuralgia of the heart. 
Mr. Jewett always displayed an active interest in politics, renouncing 
liis affiliation with the Republican party and becoming a Democrat about 
1860. He was Chairman of the Town Democratic Committee a number of 
years; Supervisor of the schools of Pittston three years; Town Treasurer 
several terms; member of the Board of Selectmen of Pittston a number of 
years, and was elected to the Legislature of Maine in 1887, being the first 
Democrat ever elected from his district. 

From Biograpliical Sketches of the Members of the House of Repre- 
sentatives of Maine, 1887 : " Gorham P. H. Jewett, Pittston, Democrat, 
a believer in universal progression, lumberman, married, age 50. Born in 
Pittston, educated in the common schools and at Litchfield Institute. Su- 
pervisor of schools three years ; Chairman of the Committee for the town of 
Pittston to negotiate for the purchase of the Gardiner and Pittston Bridge, 
and make it free. Formerly a Republican." 

He was a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Labor, and 
introduced and had passed several important bills; the most important was 
the one creating the new town of West Pittston, over which there was a long 
and hard parliamentary struggle. Later in the same session he introduced a 
bill changing the name of the town from West Pittston to Randolph, which 
was passed, and the place is now known by that name. He was one of the 
ardent supporters of the bill which abolished the death penalty in Maine. 

On the organization of Randolph (of which Mr. Jewett was called its 
father) he was elected Chairman of the first Board of Selectmen, which 
position he held a number of terms. He was always foremost in every 
enterprise to aid and promote the interest and welfare of Randolph, and was 
noted for his strict honesty, charity, and solicitude for the poor and un- 
fortunate. He died Nov. 8, 1897. Buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Ran- 

From the Reporter- Journal, Gardiner, Maine : " A feeling of surprise

and sadness was felt in the community this forenoon when the word was given 
out that Mr. G. P. H. Jewett, the well-known Randolph trader, had died 
suddenly at his home in that town of heart failure. 

"Mr. Jewett went to his store this morning apparently in his usual 
health and was shortly taken with the ill turn. He was immediately taken 
to his home and medical assistance summoned, but he was beyond relief and 
died in a very short time after being first taken. He had suffered consider- 
ably from heart trouble, having had several serious attacks, but not for a 
long time. 

" In September, 1861, he went to Cahfornia, via the Isthmus of Panama, 
returning to Pittston, via the Nicaragua route, in 1866, and engaged in 
business with Mr. A. C. Clark. This firm dissolved after several years of 
successful business. Later Mr. Jewett entered business alone, in which he 
has been continuously up to the present time. He has been prominent in 
town affairs, holding the position of Chairman of the Board of Selectmen 
several terms, a member of the Board of Supervisors, Representative to the 
Legislature, and other important positions. He was a just, upright, and 
honorable man, and no better eulogy can be pronounced in this sad hour, 
than the words spoken this forenoon to the R-J., by a poor, but respectable 
citizen of Randolph, who said : ' When you speak of Mr. Jewett, I wish 
you would say this, and you can say it honestly, if a word was ever spoken, 
that the poor people of Randolph have lost their best friend. No poor 
man in a hard place ever went to Gorham Jewett for assistance but what 
he got it, whether he was already under obligations to him or not. He 
was the poor man's friend, and surely in his death a great calamity has 
befallen them. Mr. Jewett was a square man in every sense that the word 

" These words so earnestly spoken with the tears coursing down his 
cheeks, came direct from the heart, and kind reader, the thought came to 
the writer at that time, what a grand eulogy. Certainly if when life's fitful 
fever is ended, one can leave behind such a record in the community, even 
if expressed by the humblest of his acquaintances and couched in the simplest 
language, it will stand to his everlasting credit, greater by far than any 
earthly tribute, speaks louder than volumes of meaningless praise and a 
monument to a pleasant, fragrant memory, stronger and more enduring 
than the costliest granite or marble pile." 

From the same publication, Nov. 11, 1897: " The remains of Gorham 
P. H. Jewett were tenderly placed by his Masonic brethren in the family 
lot in Maple Grove Cemetery this afternoon, the funeral taking place at 
the home on Windsor street at two o'clock. Rev. E. B. Barber conducted 
the services which consisted of reading of the Scriptures, a brief address, 
prayer and benediction. The Masonic burial service was performed at 
the grave, Senior Warden T. A. Jewett acting as Master, and Charles O. 
Turner as Chaplain. All of the stores in Randolph were closed during the 
time of the funeral."

Mrs. Jewett died In Randolph, Aug. 11, 1900. Buried in Maple Grove 
Cemetery. Her ancestors were among the most distinguished of the early 
settlers of America, and to their efforts and wise ruling much of the success 
of the Massachusetts Colony was due. Her father, Charles Edward Brad- 
street, bom in Pittston, Me., Oct. 15, 1812; married Abigail Smith; died in 
Pittston, April 3, 1892 ; son of Joseph Bradstreet, bom in Biddef ord. Me.,

Eng., in 1603; married in England, about 1628, Anna, daughter of Governor 
Thomas Dudley; came to America in 1630, in the ship Arbella; Governor 
of Massachusetts Colony : died in Salem, Mass., March 27, 1694. His wife 
Anna died in Andover, Mass., Sept. 16, 1672. She was a woman of rare 
accomplishments, and wrote a volume of poems, probably the earliest in 
America, a second edition of which was published in 1678. She was born 
in England, in 1612. Her father. Gov. Thomas Dudley, was " one of the 
most distinguished of the Puritan settlers of New England, and second 
Governor of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay ; was born at Northampton, 
in the neighborhood of the residence of the Earl of Northampton, in the 
year 1576. He was the only son of Capt. Roger Dudley, who was slain in 
battle. Being left an orphan, he was taken into the family of the Earl 
of Northampton, where he remained several years. He received the com- 
mand of a company for the French service, marched to the field, and was 
at the siege of Amiens. On the conclusion of a treaty of peace Capt. 
Dudley returned to England and settled in the neighborhood of North- 
ampton. Here he married " a gentlewoman whose extraction and estate 
were considerable." It was not long after this that Lord Say and Seal, 
and other persons of quality, recommended Mr. Dudley to Theophilus, the 
fourth Earl of Lincoln, and he became steward of the household and man- 
ager of the Earl's affairs. He remained about ten years . . . when he 
removed to Boston, in Lincolnshire, where he became a parishioner of the 
famous John Cotton, and the associate of those noble spirits who were soon 
to lay the foundations of religious freedom in the new world. Nevertheless 
the Earl of Lincoln prevailed with him to resume his former employment, 
until the storm of persecution upon the nonconformists caused many men 
of great worth to transport themselves into New England. 

Mr. Dudley was one of the five undertakers of the settlement of the 
Massachusetts colony, and came over with the charter in 1630. He was 
far advanced in life for such an undertaking, being 54 years of age. Before 
the sailing of the fleet, while the Arbella, in which he embarked, was riding

at anchor in the harbor of Cowes, Mr. Dudley was chosen deputy governor 
in the place of John Humphrey, who remained behind. 

Mr. Dudley was chosen Governor at the meeting of the General Court 
in May, 1634. This was the beginning of a new era in the history of the 
colony. It was the first Legislature in which the representative principle 
was recognized. 

The General Court, at this session, also established a military com- 
mission, vested with the most unlimited authority. At the head of this 
commission Gov. Dudley was placed, having Winthrop, Humphrey, Hayes, 
Endicott, Coddington, Pynchon, Nowell, Bellingham, and Bradstreet for 
his associates. 

The following year Gov. Dudley was superseded by John Hayes, after- 
ward Governor of Connecticut. He was chosen ass
